Case Study: Guaranteed Income is Back!

Many of us are looking forward to retirement because it provides ease and peace of mind. When you’re on your retirement journey, you, of course, want to make sure you’re financially secure.

Guaranteed income takes the stress away from a portfolio because it provides financial security and predictability. It allows individuals to know how much money they will have coming in each month, which can help them budget and plan for their expenses. This can be particularly important in retirement, as retirees may have limited opportunities to make up for any shortfalls in their income. Guaranteed income can also help alleviate concerns about outliving one’s savings, as it provides a steady stream of income that will continue regardless of market conditions or how long one lives.
