Guaranteed income options can be limited in retirement, but an annuity income rider can help.

Your Social Security benefit and pension are both types of guaranteed income and, from a retirement planning perspective, they should cover your essential income needs. But what if they don’t?

Some annuities offer an income rider feature designed to provide you with guaranteed income for the rest of your life. If you’re considering getting an annuity or already have one, listen to this episode to find out if an income rider could benefit you.

Press “play” to hear Radon and Murs continue their “Annuities – Why Ever Use Them” series by explaining how an income rider works, what the fees are, and what the long-term benefits can be.

In this episode find out:

  • Why we recommend a fixed index annuity for retirees
  • What guaranteed income is and why it’s important in retirement
  • How an annuity income rider provides guaranteed income
  • The cost of an annuity income rider
  • How an annuity income rider could suit your future
