National Insurance Awareness Day

MetLife Retirement & Income Solutions

June 28th is National Insurance Awareness Day: an opportune time to ask, what does insurance mean to you?

To MetLife’s Retirement & Income Solutions business, insurance is a promise to provide financial security no matter the market. 

The Role of Insurance in Retirement

Market uncertainty and longer lifespans make retirement planning challenging. Understandably, today’s employees are worried about outliving their savings and potentially postponing retirement. 

To address these challenges, employers can help provide retirement security to their employees by offering a stable value fund, a principal preservation option in a defined contribution plan that produces income that historically outperforms both money market funds and inflation, and a fixed income annuity, an insurance solution to turn retirement savings into a steady guaranteed stream of monthly income in retirement.

of defined contribution plan sponsors are concerned about the impact of marketing volatility on retirees.
