By utilizing Group Single Premium Annuity and Guaranteed Monthly Income Annuity products, plan sponsors transfer all or a portion of their financial obligations associated with their qualified and non qualified pension plans to a highly rated, quality life insurance company. Terminal Funding transactions permit the plan sponsor to remove this long-term liability from its balance sheet. Also, because the annuities are fully purchased, the insurer takes over all risks associated with the payment liability. Terminal Funding eliminates ongoing administrative expenses that are associated with the pension plan benefits..
Terminal funding group annuity contracts can be customized to match many of a terminated defined benefit plan's provisions such as actual retirement and early retirement ages, various forms of payment options and other features such as cost of living adjustments and pre-retirement death benefits.
Employers with defined benefit pension plans who do not wish to go through a full termination may wish to utilize a "remove as you go" strategy for "buying out" the obligation.
We offer product solutions to sponsors of Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution pension plans. Some examples where Terminal Funding may be used:
