Pacific Life Introduces Retirement Income Translator

New educational tool provides a digitally enhanced understanding of retirement income

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.—Feb. 11, 2020—Pacific Life Insurance Company has introduced the Retirement Income Translator, an online tool to help consumers understand what their retirement savings can mean when translated to retirement income. This new client resource creates a two-minute personalized video that aims to illustrate the potential benefits of protected lifetime retirement income through an annuity. This release is timely given recent legislative changes to the retirement landscape.

The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act requires defined contribution plans to provide plan participants with an annual statement reflecting monthly lifetime income. Considering these changes, the Retirement Income Translator tool can be a great resource to help educate clients about the projected monthly value of their retirement savings. This tool also can educate consumers about the potential benefits of protected lifetime income and encourage them to start the retirement income conversation with a financial professional.

“There is an information gap,” says Christine Tucker, vice president of marketing for Pacific Life’s Retirement Solutions Division. “Many consumers don’t know what their savings mean when it comes to retirement income, nor do they know if or how an annuity can help them. The Retirement Income Translator aims to bridge that gap by providing a simple, palatable personalized experience introducing protected lifetime income.”

As The Official Sponsor of Retirement®, Pacific Life is dedicated to educating consumers and financial professionals alike, while providing actionable strategies that can help offer consumers a more secure retirement.
