The Top 12 Annuity
Issuers of 2022: NAIC

U.S. insurers generated more than $380 billion in annuity payments of all kinds in 2022, up from $325 billion in 2021, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The NAIC takes in insurers’ annual reports and it compiles revenue ranking summary data to help members identify the top insurers and detect high levels of market concentration. AIG came in third with $20.8 billion and has put its life and annuity operations in a new company, Corebridge Financial.

Help Clients Generate MORE Income From Less

A Power Series Index Annuity with the Lifetime Income Choice Max Income Option allows clients:
  • Earn 10% income credits every year until lifetime income begins
  • Secure income now of up to 8% at age 65 (single life) – and up to 9% if income begins on or after age 75 (single life)
This high initial withdrawal rate allows clients to use less money than a traditional ”5% or 6% for life” strategy to generate the income they need in retirement.  Check out the difference the Max Income option can make in your client’s retirement income.
