According to a Prudential product announcement, the IncomeFlex withdrawal benefit solution is integrated with the asset-allocation models that Morningstar currently creates for participants who chose Prudential’s GoalMaker program. With the addition of IncomeFlex to a plan, in addition to GoalMaker target-based portfolios, participants will have:
- A guaranteed withdrawal benefit upon retirement,
- Upside income potential and downside income protection,
- Asset control and flexibility, including the ability to cancel at any time without a fee, and
- An optimal spousal benefit without the need for annuitization.
“The integration of IncomeFlex into our GoalMaker program creates a legitimate lifetime solution,” said Jim Mallozzi, senior vice president, Prudential Retirement, in the announcement. “It offers unbiased asset-allocation modeling during the accumulation and distribution phases of retirement planning, complete with a guaranteed income stream once a participant leaves the workforce.’
