The Indexed Annuity Leadership Council (IALC) has caught income planning outreach fever.

The Washington-based group says it has released the first video in a three-part “Game Ready” video series.

The videos will promote the idea that Americans should check their financial fitness, and that using indexed annuities can be a good way to add diversity to their retirement portfolios, IALC says.

Jim Poolman, IALC’s executive director, says in a retirement that IALC wants to show that pre-retirees can combine indexed annuities with Social Security and other income sources to round out a retirement plan.

Global Atlantic Financial Group, a major annuity issuer, recently announced that it has developed a consumer-oriented website and an advisor-oriented website to promote income planning awareness.
