In conjunction with this week’s National Retirement Planning Week, Lincoln Financial Group is underscoring the importance of generating lifetime income through an annuity, as well as the value of financial advice. Lincoln points to the fact that nearly two in five savers worry about having enough money to live the type of lifestyle they want in retirement.

“In today’s low interest rate environment and with equities at an all-time high, advisers have a unique opportunity to educate savers on solutions that provide a known source of income and financial protection,” says John Kennedy, head of retirement solutions distribution for Lincoln Financial Distributors. “This also includes helping them lock in potential gains available in the current market to generate the income they need in retirement. Developing a strong income strategy with a reliable income source, like an annuity with guaranteed lifetime income, can help investors feel more confident when facing potential risks in the future.”

In partnership with the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI), Lincoln is hosting two webinars this week for advisers to attend for Continuing Education credits. The first, on Tuesday, April 4, is on  “Women and Long-Term Care.” Advisers can register here for that webinar. The second, on Thursday, April 6, is on “Retirement Income and Investment Risk: Are You Prepared?” Registration is available here. In addition, IRI will archive recordings of the webinars on its website, and they will be available starting next week here.
