How An Income Annuity Could Help

Traditional pensions are shrinking or disappearing for many Americans, but a new generation of self-funded pensions are filling the gap – providing people like you with guaranteed lifetime income that hedges against volatile markets and uncertain retirement needs.

The IRS recently recognized the importance of these guaranteed lifetime income products – allowing them to be included in 401(k)s and IRAs.

The move is revolutionizing the annuity asset class – and leading investors to ask the question: Is a lifetime income product finally right for my portfolio?

Blueprint Income provides advice on whether you’re right for the product and then helps you compare objectively among different insurers. We've created a marketplace that allows you to choose the product that maximizes payouts at the desired credit rating. As an unbiased source, our only goal is helping you secure a long and active retirement.
