I must be the only one that questioned the source of this story. Seemed rather transparent to me - and I am biased insider:

One of the key findings from the link:

•A retirement income approach using either single premium immediate annuities or a deferred income annuity in combination with systematic withdrawals will provide a healthy individual with a larger portfolio balance at life expectancy age, and more lifetime income beyond that age, than a retirement income approach relying solely on systematic withdrawals.


Hmm... a sales pitch as a key finding. OK, let's learn more...

The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) is the leading financial services trade association for the retirement income industry. Members represent the entire supply chain of insured retirement strategies, including Insurers, Banks, Asset Managers, Broker-Dealers, Distributors, Financial Advisors and Solution Providers.


Ya, no vested interest there at all. I've never heard of this organization and I have to wonder why someone as savvy as you would be pushing a product placement ad from 2014 disguised as "research."
