Managing your retirement income

When it's time to reap the rewards of a lifetime, you need an income from your savings while growing your capital to protect your money from inflation. A living annuity is specifically designed for this purpose.

Protect your retirement income from inflation

It takes an entire working life of disciplined and targeted saving to build up sufficient capital for a comfortable retirement. Once retired, you need to inflation-proof your income for a period of at least 30 years.

When you are retired, it is great to have the flexibility to change your income annually (within certain parameters) and continue to grow your retirement savings. A living annuity provides you with flexible income options after retirement.

You can purchase a living annuity with retirement capital you have built up in a pension fund, provident fund, retirement annuity or preservation fund.
