The Income Rider Calculator; An Agent’s Best Friend

The popularity and availability of income riders has SKYROCKETED and your clients are going to want to know about all of the latest options for this fixed index annuity benefit. People are living longer, and they need to make sure that they have a steady income stream that provides comfort and security in their later years. A guaranteed lifetime income will ensure that your clients do not outlive their money, eliminating longevity risk.

BUT how are your clients going to find a living benefit that best meets their needs? Premium sources, target dates, and flexibility change from person to person. How will you, as agent, educate your clients on the benefit that best enhances their annuity product?

There is a constant stream of new products flooding the market and that can be confusing and stifling for both agents and clients. Luckily, our data team is on the clock 24 hours a day, refining and updating our inclusive database of the carriers and programs to ensure that our reports are accurate and current.

When you log in to your dashboard, you will find the Rider Calculators in the blue column on the left-hand side of your screen. In addition to the Guaranteed Income calculator, you will also have access to a Projected Income calculator (in beta testing) and a Death Benefit Calculator (coming soon).

Once the calculator is open, you will enter the state, gender, and age of your current client. You will have the option of adding their spouse’s age to calculate joint payouts as well.

Next, you will be able to choose to solve for income OR premium and choose yearly or monthly withdrawal. You can filter these results by rider or carrier name, ratings, bonuses, and surrender years based on your client’s needs.

You will also be able to choose categories that are specific to your case, such as no fee, rider doublers, interest multipliers, and increasing income.

The best part? The calculator works even faster than reading this blog article! If you are ready to see it in action, click here for a free demo.
