TIAA Traditional Offers Highest New Money Payout Rate in More Than 20 Years

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Participants electing lifetime income from TIAA Traditional, TIAA’s flagship annuity, in January 2024 will receive a historically high payout rate of 8.2%.

“When you convert your savings into lifetime income with TIAA Traditional, you get a guarantee that you’ll have money coming in for life no matter how long you live,” said Colbert Narcisse, chief product and business development officer at TIAA. “For income starting in January, the payout rate is 8.2%– more than double ‘the 4% rule’ – and is even higher if you have long-term savings in TIAA Traditional that you convert for lifetime income.ii That’s thanks to TIAA’s Loyalty Bonus—yet another way TIAA shares profits—offering the opportunity for more income the longer you’ve saved with TIAA Traditionaliii.”

The TIAA Traditional fixed annuity has paid more than the guaranteed minimum income payment every year since 1949. And in the past 30 years, TIAA has given 19 pay increases to existing annuitants.

TIAA is able to provide these strong annuity payouts due in part to TIAA’s company structure that seeks to share profitsiv with participants. TIAA is one of only three insurance groups in the U.S. to currently hold the highest possible ratings from three of the four leading independent rating agencies for its stability, claims-paying ability, and overall financial strength.v

TIAA Traditional offers clients the security of knowing their retirement savings are protected and guaranteed to increase every single day during accumulation, even in the most volatile markets.  

At retirement, clients have the opportunity, but not the obligation, to turn savings into guaranteed income that lasts for life to help cover everyday living expenses. Those who consistently contributed to TIAA Traditional throughout their careers have seen 20% higher lifetime income payments on average (versus those who transferred in equal savings amounts shortly before selecting lifetime income). vi

TIAA Traditional plays a vital role in a diversified income strategy that includes Social Security and income from variable investments and offers the peace of mind that comes with guaranteed income for life.

In addition, TIAA’s disciplined risk-management process is designed with a long-term investing approach to ensure that the TIAA General Account can provide the stability and liquidity needed to support the product’s guarantees through periods of market stress.

ii Converting some or all of your savings to income benefits (referred to as “annuitization”) is a permanent decision. Once income benefit payments have begun, you are unable to change to another option.

iii TIAA may provide a Loyalty Bonus that is only available when electing lifetime income. The amount of the bonus is discretionary and determined annually.

iv TIAA may share profits with TIAA Traditional Annuity owners through declared additional amounts of interest during accumulation, higher initial annuity income, and through further increases in annuity income benefits during retirement. These additional amounts are not guaranteed beyond the period for which they were declared.

v For its stability, claims-paying ability and overall financial strength, Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America (TIAA) is a member of one of only three insurance groups in the United States to currently hold the highest rating available to U.S. insurers from three of the four leading insurance company rating agencies: A.M. Best (A++ as of 7/23), Fitch (AAA as of 8/23) and Standard & Poor’s (AA+ as of 9/23), and the second highest possible rating from Moody’s Investors Service (Aa1 as of 9/23). There is no guarantee that current ratings will be maintained. The financial strength ratings represent a company’s ability to meet policyholders’ obligations and do not apply to variable annuities or any other product or service not fully backed by TIAA’s claims-paying ability. The ratings also do not apply to the safety or the performance of the variable accounts, which will fluctuate in value.
