The next evolution of retirement plans: securing lifetime income
In 2005, and prior to the passage of the Pension Protection Act (PPA) a year later, approximately $70B of retirement assets were allocated to target date funds.1 Then, the PPA provided a safe harbor for target date funds and other asset allocation products/services. Today, almost $3T is allocated to target date products/services.1 Similarly, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act (SECURE Act) of 2019 provides a safe harbor for employers to add annuities to their plan menus, if certain requirements are met. We could potentially see robust growth in these products/services as a result.
We, at Nuveen and TIAA, believe that adding the TIAA Secure Income Account to a well-diversified Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA) can improve expected retirement outcomes, increase guaranteed lifetime income and reduce multiple risks. In this paper , we examine which components and how much of the portfolio could potentially be replaced, as well as potential timing.
