Protected Retirement Plan

Protected Retirement Plan options

If your clients like the idea of receiving a guaranteed income and having control over their pension fund, our Fixed Term Annuity offers them more flexibility and access to their money. They'll have control over their plan and choice over what benefits they'll want to receive.


Our conversion feature is included with all new contracts at no extra cost, and allows your client to end their existing plan and transfer out at any time should their circumstances change, so they:

  • won’t have to wait until the plan is due to end if they don’t want to
  • can transfer out to another retirement product, or take as taxable cash, at any time, for any reason

The conversion value is not guaranteed.


Your client can choose from several options when they are paid their annuity:

  • they can choose to have level income, receiving the same income amount throughout their annuity term
  • they can choose to have their income increase each year by a fixed percentage, for example by 3%
  • you can ask us to calculate an income level which aims to provide a guaranteed maturity value that if used to purchase a lifetime annuity, would provide an income to a similar level to that paid in this plan
  • they can choose not to receive any income at all.

More about income options

Customer death benefits

Your client can choose to buy one or more of our optional death benefits at the start of the plan in case they pass away before the end of the term.

Beneficiary's Income
Your client can choose to provide their spouse, civil partner or chosen beneficiary with an income.
Guaranteed period
Your client can protect their income for a set period and if they pass away during this time, the remaining income will be paid as a lump sum (unless combined with a beneficiary’s income, where it will continue as income to your chosen beneficiary).
Value protection
Your client can protect up to 100% of their original investment if they pass away within the plan term.
Trustee death benefits

There doesn’t have to be a death benefit with the plan, but if it’s required your client can only ask the trustees to choose one type.

Value protection
Up to 100% of the amount invested (less any income paid) payable if your client dies before the end of the plan.
Plan protection
If the member dies during the plan term, plan protection guarantees that the chosen income will continue to be paid for the rest of the plan term, and any guaranteed maturity value will be paid when the plan ends. If the members beneficiary(s) do not want or are unable to continue with the plan, the conversion option can be utilised to end the plan immediately in exchange for a lump sum.
