The act would provide a 50% tax break on as much as $20,000 in annual income from nonqualified lifetime annuities. The Senate bills mirrors H.R. 2748, the Retirement Security Needs Lifetime Pay Act, recently introduced into the House by Reps Early Pomeroy (D-N.D.) and Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Fla.).

"By providing a strong tax incentive for Americans to use lifetime annuities as part of their retirement portfolio, policymakers are helping people secure their retirement," Bill Waldie, chairman of Americans for Secure Retirement (ASR), a coalition representing the life insurance industry, said in a statement. "This is an important step toward addressing the anxiety many Americans feel toward their financial outlook during retirement."

Testimonial Image
We wanted to establish a bit of extra income. There was a good recommendation about ImmediateAnnuities.com on CNN. We also liked that we could see excellent reviews about them on Google. They were very thorough from our first inquiry to when we decided to buy our annuity from Mass Mutual. They always answered our questions promptly and followed up with the insurance company, too. We have been receiving our monthly payments since last November and couldn’t be happier. What more can we say?
