Allianz Lifetime Income+® Annuity with the Lifetime Income Benefit

Allianz Lifetime Income+® Annuity with the Lifetime Income Benefit is a fixed index annuity that offers guaranteed retirement income and is easily added to any defined contribution retirement plan.

Fixed index annuities are designed to meet long-term needs for retirement income. They provide guarantees against the loss of principal and credited interest, tax-deferred accumulation potential, and the reassurance of a death benefit for beneficiaries.


A modern solution

By allocating a portion of their DC plan savings to Allianz Lifetime Income+® Annuity, plan participants can have the potential for their retirement savings to grow with a fixed index annuity (FIA) while also building guaranteed lifetime income.



As an FIA contract issued by an insurance company, contributions to Allianz Lifetime Income+® are not directly invested in stocks or bonds, keeping participant allocations protected from market risk.

How Allianz Lifetime Income+® builds a foundation for lifetime income

Allianz Lifetime Income+® and the Lifetime Income Benefit work together to enhance the Lifetime Income Value with a pair of features called Income Builder and Income Accelerator.

Working Years

Saving for retirement

Even before a participant retires, Allianz Lifetime Income+® Annuity and the Lifetime Income Benefit work to support retirement income objectives with a pair of features to enhance the Lifetime Income Value:

Income Accelerator: Any interest earned (indexed or fixed) is multiplied by 150% and added to the Lifetime Income Value on the contract anniversary.

Earned Interest x 150% = Income Accelerator

Income Builder: Whether or not any interest was earned (indexed or fixed), an annual 2% credit is applied to the Lifetime Income Value on the contract anniversary. This guaranteed growth begins at age 50 and continues until the contract holder is ready to start receiving lifetime withdrawals.


Retirement Years

Taking income

When someone is ready to retire and start taking income (at age 60 or older), Allianz Lifetime Income+® is designed to use the Lifetime Income Value that they’ve been building.

Through lifetime withdrawals, income is guaranteed for as long as the participant lives, along with the continued potential for increases. Every time chosen allocations earn interest, income will increase.

Not only that, Income Accelerator will continue to increase income by 150% of any interest earned on the contract anniversary.


Protection from market loss with growth potential

Fixed index annuities do not directly participate in any stock, equity, or bond investments – so you’re not exposed to market risk. Instead, you can earn interest that’s based on changes in a market index (such as the S&P 500® Index). The annuity's value is allocated to one or more indexes. We then track the performance of these index(es). At the end of each contract anniversary, using a crediting method, we calculate any indexed interest that’s due.


If the result is positive

Interest will be credited automatically to the contract. That interest is locked in and cannot be lost in the future due to any index decline.


If the result is negative

Nothing happens – no interest is credited, but in this case, that’s good news. The annuity’s value will not decline due to a loss.


Seamless and simplified experience

Allianz Lifetime Income+® takes a modern, tech-enabled approach through coordination among recordkeepers, enrollers, managed account providers, middleware providers, and other defined contribution plan partners. Recordkeepers and advisor networks can offer the Allianz Lifetime Income+® Annuity with the Lifetime Income Benefit as a protected accumulation and decumulation option in 401(k) and other defined contribution plans.
