HelloLife™ retirement program

Your one-step retirement income plan

You’ve worked hard to save for retirement. An all-encompassing program and spending plan can help ensure your money lasts throughout your retirement years.

  • Guaranteed income

    A simple income annuity turns some of your retirement savings into regular income.

  • Investments for growth

    Flexible segregated funds help control your investments and give them the opportunity to grow.

  • The right balance for you

    Customizable for your unique situation whether you’re conservative or growth-oriented.

What is HelloLife?

It’s a program that provides you with retirement income from two main sources. HelloLife uses a mix of annuities for certainty and security along with segregated funds for potential growth and flexibility. You can enjoy the certainty of regular, guaranteed income for as long as you live, combined with the potential ability to enhance your income through investments.

How does it work?

  • You and an advisor determine your retirement goals and map out your basic and lifestyle spending.
  • You use the online retirement planner to visualize what your retirement could look like.
  • You determine how much of your savings you turn into an income annuity and how much you invest in a segregated fund policy.
  • The annuity provides a guaranteed retirement income regardless of market ups and downs for a fixed period or for the rest of your life, whatever you choose.
  • A segregated fund policy offers potential growth and flexibility for your investments, plus insurance protection for you and your beneficiaries through built-in guarantees.
