Global Atlantic Helps Customers Face Retirement with Certainty

Indianapolis, IN —Global Atlantic Financial Group recently announced the launch of ForeCertain, a new, single-premium income annuity issued by Forethought Life Insurance Company. ForeCertain provides a simple and certain way for customers to convert their retirement savings into a predictable stream of guaranteed income.              

Global Atlantic provides a client-focused approach to retirement planning. ForeCertain is an easy-to-understand option clients can purchase to help meet their individual retirement objectives.

According to the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI), less than a quarter of private-industry workers are covered by a defined benefit pension today.1 That means more than 75% of this population will need another form of guaranteed income to help fill the void.

“Retirees today are looking for certainty in an uncertain world. Continued market volatility is causing consumers to rethink their retirement strategies and the need to incorporate new sources of guaranteed income, said Robert Arena, President of Retirement and Life at Global Atlantic. “ForeCertain provides an uncomplicated means of generating reliable retirement income that can supplement existing sources such as pensions or Social Security.”

Client-Focused Flexibility
Americans at or near retirement can use a portion of their existing retirement savings to purchase a guaranteed income stream using a ForeCertain income annuity. ForeCertain offers the option for single or joint income, which can be started now or at a specific date in the future.

ForeCertain can help provide a level of stability to a retirement income strategy regardless of whether income is needed now or in the future. It features nine different income options and four optional benefits to help clients customize income to meet their needs.

“ForeCertain bolsters our already robust annuity platform, reinforcing our strategy-based distribution model,” said Paula Nelson, Head of Retirement Distribution at Global Atlantic. “This distribution model allows us to provide advisors with a consultative approach that’s client-centric and not based on the sale of one particular product.”

The company’s retirement product portfolio now includes immediate and deferred income annuities, variable annuities, as well as fixed index annuities, fixed annuities and a fixed annuity with long-term care benefits, available through multiple distribution networks.

National Availability
ForeCertain is available in 49 states and the District of Columbia. Forethought Life Insurance Company does not issue in New York. A fee-based version of ForeCertain will also be available, with the same flexible features and options.
