Indianapolis – (June 4, 2012) The State Life Insurance Company, a OneAmerica® company, announced today that it has added a single premium immediate annuity (SPIA) to its existing ImmediateCare product offering. ImmediateCare SPIA offers those in early retirement with traditional expenses the opportunity to create a guaranteed income for either a fixed period or for life. ImmediateCare SPIA joins ImmediateCare Plus, which has for over a decade provided health-based monthly income to help individuals pay for long-term care.
“As more and more of today’s Baby Boomers reach retirement age without the benefit of a traditional pension, products that create a guaranteed source of income become more important,” said Chris Coudret, executive vice president for State Life. “Immediate annuities have long provided steady retirement income. We feel the ability for our customers to now choose between a traditional income to fund daily expenses and an income that is health-based to fund long-term care is unique in our industry.”
State Life has a long track record of innovation, beginning in 1988 with the introduction of Asset-Care®—the first whole life insurance policy to allow access to its full death benefit for long-term care expenses. Over the past two decades additional product offerings have been added, rounding out State Life’s Care Solutions portfolio of asset-based long-term care products.
“Our experience and focus in the retiree market has taught us that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all product” added Bruce Moon, vice president of individual products for the OneAmerica companies. “It’s important to offer today’s retirees options and the ability to customize products to their specific needs. ImmediateCare Plus and ImmediateCare SPIA represent that philosophy.”
