Jackson CEO Barry Stowe Spotlights the Importance of Protected Retirement Income in Newly Released Video

Jackson
National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®)
serves as a co-chair and founding member of the Alliance for Lifetime
Income, and is helping lead the charge in uniting 24 of the nation’s
financial services companies to raise awareness of the country’s looming
retirement crisis. As part of the kickoff activities in Washington D.C.,
Chief Executive Officer Barry Stowe addressed the need for protected
retirement income — income that is sheltered from market volatility and
longevity risk.

“Jackson helped to establish the Alliance for Lifetime Income because it
is critically important for our industry to work together to solve a
genuinely pressing social issue — millions of Americans are retiring
every year without adequate financial security,” said Stowe. “Financial
freedom at its core means freedom from worry. By partnering with
third-party advocates, academic experts and policymakers to address this
problem, we can provide Americans with protected income solutions that
will last through their entire retirement lives.”

The Alliance is an important next step in Jackson’s commitment to
changing the narrative around the need for more comprehensive retirement
planning and providing educational resources for financial professionals
and consumers. The company has also rolled out an integrated educational
marketing campaign addressing the need for lifetime income at RetireReassured.com,
and is planning several upcoming initiatives over the coming year to
support the campaign.

A recent study conducted jointly by Jackson and the Insured Retirement
Institute (IRI), The
Language of Retirement 2017: Advisor and Consumer Attitudes Toward
Securing Income in Retirement, revealed most Americans favor
financial strategies that offer guaranteed lifetime income1,
yet they are largely unaware that annuities can provide this feature.
The study found that while three-quarters of all consumers surveyed said
they were familiar with annuities, less than half understood an annuity
can provide lifetime income.

“This disconnect is devastating to American savers and the advisors who
are trying to serve the best interests of their clients,” said Stowe.
“It’s our job to educate Americans and ensure they know annuities are
designed to prevent consumers from outliving their income.”

Through its nationwide, multi-year, integrated educational campaign, the
Alliance seeks to motivate consumers and financial advisors by bringing
together key member companies within the retirement industry to offer
important educational resources, including an interactive website
(RetireYourRisk.org). The Alliance will also be focusing on developing
new, simpler language that the retirement industry can use with
consumers and financial advisors to break down the complexities and
answer common questions about lifetime income solutions, including
annuities.
