"Remove as You Go" Option (Maturity Funding)
After a plan sponsor has removed the block from the pension plan, BCG Terminal
Funding Company would then set up a maturity funding contract or simply, "remove
as you go".
Retirement Income Preserver
Sometimes referred to as "maturity funding," is an individual Annuity
for employees to convert part or all of the IRA or 401(k) account balance into
a secure, guaranteed payment stream for a lifetime for the retiree or retiree
and spouse, or for a specific number of years. The Retirement Income Preserver
Annuity is an Institutional Product that is designed to meet the specific needs
of each retiree. For the same $25,000 annuity purchased on the "Street"
or retail product, the Retirement Income Preserver Annuity will provide a greater
For example, a male age 65, female age 62, asks to see how much $25,000 would
convert to a monthly benefit. The "Street" product would generate
x, while the Retirement Income Preserver Annuity product would generate y.
In much the same way that a full plan termination takes a group of plan participants,
calculates their retirement benefit payments and purchases a group annuity to
fund the obligations, the Retirement Income Preserver Annuity program does this
on an individual level. The Retiree receives competitive pricing from multiple,
high rated Insurance Carriers within 48 hours of their request. Our product
uses a Group Mortality Table in all situations vs. a "Street" or retail
product that uses an Individual Mortality Table and is loaded with high commissions.
Why do retirees need a Retirement Income Preserver Annuity?
The biggest risk facing today's retirees is how do I manage my money if I don't
even know how long I am going to live. The average participant today has difficulty
managing their money before retirement, and this inexperience makes an annuity
a smart option.
How Long Will We Live?
A male, age 65, has a 50% chance of living to age 85 and a 25% chance of living
to age 92.
A female, age 65, has a 50% change of living to age 88 and a 25% chance of
living to age 94.
A couple, both age 65, has a 50% chance of living to age 92 and a 25% chance
of living to age 97.
These figures show that today's retirees need an annuity to help with their
retirement needs. Simply put, they can't outlive the annuity!

The employer typically establishes the program through which departing employees
are contacted either through the human resource department or by referral to
a BCG Terminal Funding Representative. We also have the capability to create
a link on your website for the participants to find more information or to request
BCG Terminal Funding Company can help evaluate your plan to see if
this type of program would be appropriate to implement. We will work with your
staff to ensure a smooth transition for future plan participants to provide
their retirement benefits.
Remember, the greatest risk facing most today's retirees is underestimating
how long they'll live. The greatest exposure they face is financial risk in
the form of market volatility, inflation and living well into their 90's.
