Nearing or being in retirement is not the time to risk your clients' savings.

  • Optional Rising Income Rider for increasing lifetime income

Being close to or in retirement may not be the time for your clients to take risks with their retirement savings. But, that doesn't mean they have to sacrifice growth for safety. ClearLine Annuity can help grow your clients’ retirement savings without investing in the stock market. Your clients can receive interest credits based on a portion of the increase of a financial market index, but are guaranteed to never lose money due to market loss.

And, with the optional Rising Income Rider, your clients are guaranteed retirement income payments that may increase every year — for life.
