IALC Launches Last Video in “Game Ready” Three-Part Series
Americans can be Prepared for Retirement by Prioritizing Financial Health the Same Way as Physical Health
To help jump-start retirement planning, the Indexed Annuity Leadership Council (IALC) has released the last video in a three-part series designed to educate Americans about being ready for life after work. Titled “Family Ready,” the final video highlights the importance of spending time with the people you love in retirement. This video is part of the Game Ready initiative that encourages Americans to get an annual financial check-up to help improve retirement readiness.
According to a 2018 report, 62% of Americans surveyed say they are most looking forward to spending time with family in their golden years. Moreover, nearly 80% of Americans say their number one goal for retirement is a stable income they can't outlive. The Family Ready video helps shed light on retirement tools, such as fixed indexed annuities (FIAs), which can provide guaranteed lifetime income to help prepare pre-retirees for all the special moments to come, with those who matter most.

"The best option for retirement is a diversified portfolio," said Jim Poolman, Executive Director of the IALC. "We hope to use these videos to help pre-retirees learn about options like fixed indexed annuities, which can be combined with Social Security and other income sources to round out a retirement plan. This helps boost confidence, knowing they are prepared for life after work."
Game Ready is an initiative that encourages Americans to treat financial fitness just like physical health. The educational video series aims to promote retirement planning by providing simple tips to examine financial habits, explore potential benefits and pitfalls, develop a set of goals, and discover useful retirement planning tools and options.
