A guaranteed income can provide security for your clients, something many people crave during retirement. 

Our Pension Annuity provides a guaranteed income for life, with enhancements available for people whose lifestyle choices or medical history could shorten their life expectancy. We also offer two fixed term annuity plans: our Fixed Term Retirement Plan and Cash-Out Retirement Plan. Both plans can provide a guaranteed income over a chosen period of time more flexibility than you might think. As more people transition gradually towards retirement, our fixed term plans can help, perhaps providing temporary income until occupational pensions or state pensions become payable.

Even clients who choose drawdown, can benefit from including a layer of guaranteed income. Guaranteed income can form the foundations of a drawdown portfolio, covering essential and important expenditure. There are other benefits, too. There’s growing evidence that adding a lifetime annuity can deliver better outcomes for your clients.

1RPI is the index of the average change in the prices of goods and services in the UK. Your client can choose to have the increase capped at 5%, referred to as the Limited Price Index (LPI). If they choose an income that increases over time, the income we’ll pay them to begin with will be lower than if they'd chosen a level income.
