Vision / Mission


The Retirement Income Institute will seek to facilitate and foster private-sector innovation and reform to shape a future in which Americans are able to retire with less risk, more confidence, and a more secure economic future.


The Retirement Income Institute will create a bridge from ideas, research, and evidence to action related to protected lifetime income – by retirement savers, the Alliance for Lifetime Income’s member companies, employers, financial professionals, and other key participants in the U.S. retirement ecosystem.

The Institute has adopted its 2021 Research Agenda and issued a new call for papers.

Periodically, the Institute will issue a new call for papers to solicit high-quality research and opinion from the nation’s scholars, graduate students, and retirement experts.

By building a bridge between scholarly, evidence-based research and analysis, with practical ideas and actions, we’re able to translate this research and analysis into actions that, ultimately, can help protect retirees.
