  • TIAA Traditional Payout Increases 5% for 2022

    December 21, 2021 by TIAA

    NEW YORK, December 16, 2021 – Beginning in January 2022, lifetime income payments to holders of the TIAA Traditional fixed annuity1 who opted to annuitize in retirement will increase by 5%, the largest boost in 40 years.
     
    The additional payout of $180 million to clients of the company’s flagship offering will bring the total income paid to retirees in 2022 to $3.6 billion. TIAA Traditional has paid more in lifetime income than its contractually guaranteed minimum amount every year for the last 70 years, providing clients who choose to annuitize with a solid foundation of steady, guaranteed lifetime income payments regardless of market conditions.[i] All told, TIAA has paid more than $505 billion in benefits since 1918, the year TIAA was founded and 17 years before Social Security began. TIAA’s retired clients have never missed a payout.
     
    “For over 100 years, through up and down markets, TIAA Traditional has helped millions of people build a solid retirement foundation through the creation of lifetime income,” said Thasunda Brown Duckett, TIAA President and CEO.  “We do this through steady financial stewardship, diverse and sustainable investments and a relentless focus on creating secure retirements for people whose purpose is to serve others.”
    • Guaranteed Growth and Income: TIAA Traditional provides guaranteed growth during the working years people pay into it, which means the value of money contributed is guaranteed to increase every day – even in the most volatile markets. It also provides guaranteed lifetime income by providing the opportunity to turn savings into regular monthly income to help meet everyday living expenses in retirement. It’s like getting a “paycheck”ii for life when you stop working.
    • Additional Amounts: Along with providing a guaranteed fixed rate, TIAA Traditional offers the potential to receive extra interest and income, declared annually at the discretion of the company’s board, as announced today.
    • “Loyalty Bonus”: TIAA Traditional also offers an exclusive benefit for long-term contributors – a “loyalty bonus” that rewards savers with additional amounts of income based on how long they have been investing.iii Contributing to TIAA Traditional consistently over a working career can significantly increase payments in retirement, with an average lifetime income advantage of 22.4%.iv
     

    Returning Profits to Clients

    TIAA is private company whose mission is to provide retirement security for educators, healthcare workers, researchers, government employees and others in service. This unique structure and heritage enables a pure focus on serving its plan clients and their employee participants. Profits can be shared with participants through their TIAA Traditional account.v   
     
    The 5% income increase is funded by the strong underlying performance of TIAA’s general account, which is the investment portfolio that supports TIAA Traditional’s ongoing obligations. The general account is distinguished by financial strength, a highly diversified portfolio, a long-term investment time horizon and economies of scale.
     
    “Our promise to our participants and annuitants is simply this:  We will always stay true to our mission and always strive to enhance our investment capabilities supporting TIAA Traditional, including our premier global asset manager Nuveen, so that the people we serve can enjoy the financial security and confidence of guaranteed lifetime income no matter how long their retirement lasts,” said Duckett.

    ivSource: TIAA Annuity Center of Excellence, based on a study that compared the amount of initial lifetime income that would have been received by two hypothetical participants beginning lifetime income, for each of the 334 months from January 1, 1994, through October 1, 2021. The two hypothetical participants are the same age (age 67) and they select a single-life annuity with a 10-year guarantee period using TIAA’s standard payout annuity. The career contributor made level monthly contributions to TIAA Traditional under the Retirement Annuity Contract over a 30-year career prior to their retirement date. The new contributor transferred the same final accumulation as the career contributor to TIAA Traditional shortly before selecting lifetime income. Over the study period, the career contributor’s initial lifetime income exceeded that of the new contributor in 324 of the 334 retirement months, with an average lifetime income advantage of 14.5 percent. Their biggest advantage was 29.8 percent and their smallest advantage was -2.9 percent (i.e., a disadvantage). Over the study’s most recent decade, the career contributor’s initial lifetime income exceeded that of the new contributor in all 120 retirement months, with an average lifetime income advantage of 22.4 percent. Their biggest advantage was 29.8 percent and their smallest advantage was 12.8 percent. In the study’s most recent month, the career contributor’s initial lifetime income exceeded that of the new contributor by 17.6 percent.
     
    vTIAA may share profits with TIAA Traditional retirement annuity owners through declared additional amounts of interest and through increases in annuity income throughout retirement.  These additional amounts are not guaranteed other than for the period for which they were declared.
