New TIAA-CREF Articles Educate Investors on How to Maximize Retirement Income
Retirement Literacy Series to Focus on Strategies for Making Savings Last a Lifetime
New York.- TIAA-CREF has published the first in a new series of articles that explores strategies for maximizing retirement income.
The first article in the series, “Myth vs. Fact: Systematic Withdrawals vs. Income Annuity Payments,” addresses the common misconception that a series of systematic withdrawals is a more efficient way to provide retirement income than an annuity payment, which may not necessarily be the case.
The article examines managing “longevity risk,” the possibility of running out of retirement savings if one lives longer than expected, and the use of an annuity as a tool that can help ensure income for life*.
“This information can help investors make fact-based decisions about their options regarding the conversion of retirement savings, and provide guidance on how to help maximize and extend income during retirement,” said Maliz Beams, TIAA-CREF’s Executive Vice President for Individual Client Services. “When it comes to the goal of maximizing retirement income and achieving lifetime financial security, it helps to have a plan that is informed by objective, personalized advice and the right information.”
The new series will feature additional articles that draw on TIAA-CREF’s long experience in providing lifetime income to help individuals gain a better understanding of the issues and solutions available in the market.
TIAA-CREF serves more than 3.4 million active and retired participants and more than 15,000 institutions. Over 500,000 TIAA-CREF participants received a combined $10 billion in annual payments from the organization in 2007.
