Summary

The unprecedented migration of people and assets moving into retirement will continue. The Retirement Income Reference Book gives you the unbiased, credible retirement industry knowledge your organization needs to assess the retirement income opportunity and develop a strategic response.

Some Key Findings:

  • There are already 50.5 million retirees in the United States, and that figure will increase to 72 million by 2035. Nearly half of Americans currently retire between ages 61 and 65.
  • The demand for guaranteed lifetime income is huge: nearly $780 billion. Interest in creating guaranteed income remains high for pre-retirees.
  • The longevity of Americans keeps improving. One out of four 65-year-old men of average health will live to age 93 and 1 out of 4 65-year-old women will live to age 96.
  • In 8 out of 10 cases, couples are likely to have long lives and could maximize Social Security benefits by delaying claims. What financial products might they need to hold them over until then?
  • Just having an advisor or having an annuity is not enough to build retirement confidence. A formal income plan is the best stimulus for and predictor of retiree confidence levels.
