Insurance guarantees for retirement benefits — such as annuities, QLACs, and GMWBs—are increasing in popularity . . . because they guarantee that the money lasts for a lifetime. However, there is not much guidance about the fiduciary process for selecting a particular annuity or GMWB product to provide those guaranteed benefits. We have written a white paper about issues for selecting GMWB products for Lincoln Financial, which can be found at http://bit.ly/1rtMnFX. This article, found here: http://bit.ly/1yOnoS7, discusses key points from the white paper.
