The Value of Guaranteed Income for Life


Let TIAA-CREF help you create a portfolio that suits your long-term retirement goals:

Ensuring adequate lifetime income is a primary reason you save for retirement. The goal of saving for retirement isn’t just to build wealth - it’s to replace the income you earned when you were working.

A low-cost annuity can be a valuable component of a well-diversified retirement portfolio to and through retirement. It helps minimize volatility, improve overall portfolio returns over time and provides guaranteed income you can’t outlive.
