  • Announcing the Launch of the AARP Annuity Marketplace powered by Blueprint Income

    May 2, 2020 by Blueprint Income

    NEW YORKMay 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Blueprint Income has launched the AARP® Annuity Marketplace powered by Blueprint Income at https://www.blueprintincome.com/aarp. It is the exclusive marketplace for AARP members to compare and purchase simple annuities from a select group of seven highly-rated1 insurance companies.

    Over the last 40 years, Americans’ options for retirement have changed. Many employers have switched from offering defined benefit pension plans to defined contribution 401(k) plans, thus giving individuals more options and responsibility when it comes to preparing for retirement.

    “Blueprint Income believes in the importance of simple retirement income solutions in a world where lifetime pensions are increasingly unavailable. Fixed annuities offer an insurer-backed guaranteed return, while income annuities offer a guaranteed income stream, and both can be great options.Times like these show the importance of not relying solely on investments that can fluctuate significantly in value for your core retirement income,” according to Matt Carey, Blueprint Income’s co-founder and CEO.

    Through the AARP Annuity Marketplace powered by Blueprint Income, AARP members can customize, compare, and purchase simple annuities from the following insurance companies, each with a financial strength rating of A+ or higher from A.M. Best Company: New York Life, The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America®, Western & Southern Financial Group, Pacific Life, Lincoln Financial Group®, Principal Financial Group®, and Mutual of Omaha.3 Members can use the site to learn and shop independently or work directly with Blueprint Income licensed insurance agents at no cost. AARP members can also receive a complementary annual retirement income check-up.

    Blueprint Income has become the most widely visited annuity resource on the Internet, with more than 1.5 million visitors in 2019 and significant year over year growth. The AARP Annuity Marketplace powered by Blueprint Income is committed to delivering a modern, customer-centric approach to people 50 and older.
