The Institute has adopted its 2021 Research Agenda consisting of four topics directly related to protected lifetime income as part of retirement planning for American households:

  • Optimizing annuities in a portfolio for retirement and late-life health costs.
  • Understanding differences in consumer behavior and decision-making, including differences associated with race and gender.
  • Private-sector strategies for including annuities in employer-provided retirement plans.
  • Annuities in the era of COVID-19 and low interest rates.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
