Pacific Life Recognizes Changing Income Needs With New Offering

New Variable Annuity and Living Benefits Provide Income Flexibility and the Certainty of a Simple- Interest Credit and Protected Lifetime Income

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Jan. 19, 2021)—Pacific Life launched Pacific Choice® Income, a new variable annuity with two living benefits—Enhanced Income Select 2 and Future Income Generator. Designed to help consumers grow and protect their retirement income, this new offering provides the flexibility to withdraw income when clients need it most.

For clients who are planning an active retirement and want to maximize their income with flexibility, Enhanced Income Select 2 offers higher withdrawals early in retirement, the flexibility to start and stop withdrawals, and an income rollover feature that allows them to carry over remaining unused amounts into the next contract year’s withdrawal.

For clients looking for income predictability, Future Income Generator provides the confidence of knowing they’ll receive steady income for life, even if the contract value goes to zero, while providing the opportunity to receive additional income if the markets perform well.

Both benefits offer a 5 percent simple-interest credit for 10 years, or until the first withdrawal.

“If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that nothing is predictable, yet consumers are still looking for predictable income,” said Joe Celentano, executive vice president of Pacific Life’s Retirement Solutions Division. “We wanted to give clients the flexibility to decide how they’d like to receive income in retirement and provide them with the certainty of a simple-interest credit so they can grow their income without worrying about interest rates or market performance. With Pacific Choice Income and either Enhanced Income Select 2 or Future Income Generator, clients can secure protected lifetime income that fits their specific needs—either more income and the flexibility to roll unused withdrawals into the next year, or steady income regardless of market performance.”
