New Guide from Pacific Life and Pacific Life & Annuity Helps Clients Assess Their Road to Retirement.
Many Americans do not realize that there is a retirement crisis. More than 100 million Americans1 plan to retire in the next three decades but a report from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College found that nearly 45% of all working American households are "at risk" of not having enough income to maintain their standard of living when they retire.2
According to Alyce Peterson, vice president of marketing services for the Life Insurance Division of Pacific Life, the new Road to Retirement guide provides an overview and comparison of retirement products and options for maximizing savings. "The time to start considering all retirement income options, including life insurance, is now. The cost of waiting can be very high. A permanent cash value life insurance policy will not only provide death benefit protection along the way, it can also supplement retirement income from the potential tax-deferred growth of a policy's cash value," she explained.
Financial professionals appointed with Pacific Life and/or Pacific Life & Annuity can access interactive retirement tools and other retirement related materials at the new virtual Retirement Center at Lifeline.PacificLife.com. The Retirement Center features:
* Retirement calculators
* Retirement Architect software
* Sales ideas featuring life insurance and
* PowerPoint presentations for clients
Financial professionals can get a copy of the "Road to Retirement" guide by contacting their Pacific Life or Pacific Life & Annuity representative or by calling 866-722-9555.
