BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fidelity Investments®, one of the most diversified financial services firms and the industry’s retirement planning leader1, today announced the addition of the USAA Single Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA) to The Fidelity Insurance Network®. The first USAA annuity to be offered on Fidelity's platform, the USAA SPIA enables individuals to convert a lump sum into guaranteed2 income for life or a predetermined set period of time.
“Annuities can be an important option for building a well-diversified portfolio, by helping people to generate guaranteed retirement income and protect their assets,” said Bill Johnson, president of Fidelity Investments Life Insurance. “We are pleased to launch this new annuity offering with USAA, one of the leading insurance and annuity providers in the country.”
The USAA SPIA can help provide peace of mind during retirement years, knowing that a guaranteed stream of income is available. Additionally, the product:
- Offers customers the ability to customize an annuity to protect beneficiaries.
- Has a lifetime income option that increases payments up to 3% each year to help address the steadily rising cost of living.
- Provides a one-time withdrawal feature to help address certain financial emergencies.
“USAA Life Insurance Company is pleased to complement our existing annuity offerings with this new option through Fidelity Investments, making the financial strength and security of our company available to more retirees,” said Bill White, vice president and general manager, retirement products at USAA.
“Both companies are well aligned with regard to providing high quality financial planning and advice, as well as recognizing the importance of offering quality annuity solutions as part of an overall retirement plan,” added White.
Although this is the first USAA annuity to be offered by Fidelity Investments, the Fidelity Insurance Network® also makes available a broad variety of annuity products designed to help people increase savings, protect savings, or guarantee income for life. Fidelity has offered simpler, high value annuity products for more than 30 years. The product offering includes fixed and variable annuities to enhance and protect savings as well as provide immediate and future income.
