impact over time can be devastating. According to the Bureau of

The good news? There is a way to neutralize the effect of inflation.

Some insurance companies are now offering inflation protection
on lifetime income annuities. This feature ensures that your
income payments will increase each year to help counter the neg-
ative effects of inflation. This increased income will continue for
as long as your retirement lasts, whether that is 10, 20, even 30

Remember, you'll be trusting a company to provide a guaranteed

lifetime stream of income throughout your retirement. It's impor-
tant to buy an annuity from an insurance company with a steady
track record, such as New York Life Insurance and Annuity
Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of New York Life
Insurance Company, which can provide the financial stability that
is essential to your retirement plan.

A retirement plan that includes a lifetime income annuity and gives

you the flexibility to adjust for inflation can provide tremendous
peace of mind--no matter what the future may hold.
