3 Financial strength and stability Great-West Life is a leading Canadian insurer with interests in life and health insurance, investment, retirement savings and reinsurance businesses, primarily in Canada and Europe. In Canada, Great-West Life and its subsidiaries, London Life and Canada Life, offer a broad portfolio of financial and benefit plan s and serve the financial security needs of more than 12 million people. Great-West Life s products include a wide range of investment, retirement savings and income plans, as well as life, disability, critical illness and health insurance for individuals and families. Great-West Life has more than $192 billion * in assets under administration and is a subsidiary of Great-West Lifeco Inc., a member of the Power Financial Corporation group of companies. *Assets as at Sept. 30, 2010 For information about Great-West and our products and services, visit Notes about segregated fund policies This information applies only to the Great-West Life segregated funds launched in The Great-West Life segregated funds contract and information folder contain complete details about all the features of the lifetime income benefit. Read them carefully to ensure you understand the lifetime income benefit and its features. Features and guarantees vary by policy and age of annuitant and some limitations apply. Maturity and death benefit guarantees are reduced proportionately by withdrawals. Creditor protection depends on court decisions and applicable legislation, which can be subject to change and can vary between provinces; it can never be guaranteed. Talk to your lawyer to find out more about the potential for creditor protection for your specific situation. Deferral bonuses are not a guaranteed rate of return. They have no cash value and do not increase any applicable maturity or death guarantee benefits. Deferral bonuses increase your eligible lifetime income amount. Excess withdrawals will decrease the lifetime income amount and you will no longer be eligible for any future bonuses. An excess withdrawal is a withdrawal that exceeds the annual guaranteed income amount. Reset options must be chosen at time of initial premium to the segregated funds and cannot be removed once added. Additional fees apply. Income resets do not increase the maturity or death benefit guarantees. Resets are calculated every three years on the lifetime income benefit anniversary and come into effect on January 1 of the next calendar year. Once income begins, a deferral bonus can only apply when no withdrawals are made during two successive years and the market value is greater than or equal to the lifetime income withdrawal base on the most recent lifetime income benefit anniversary. 3

4 Great-West Life lifetime income benefit Guarantee your income for life For years your focus has been to save for retirement. Now you need innovative s to help you transition your hard-earned savings into income that will last your lifetime. You also need to protect your savings against three retirement risks: Longevity risk: You might outlive your money. Market return risk: You could experience poor market returns in the early retirement years, increasing the chances you ll use all your savings sooner than you planned. Inflation risk: Your retirement savings might not earn enough to keep up with inflation. The Great-West Life lifetime income benefit option helps you manage these risks in retirement and protect your savings. The lifetime income benefit can help provide: Predictable, guaranteed income for life beginning as early as age 50 The potential for increasing income A safe transition from savings to income Guaranteed income for life for you and your spouse Your lifetime income amount will not decrease regardless of how the segregated funds perform. 4

5 Longevity risk Retirement planning considers the risk that you or your spouse might outlive your assets. The lifetime income benefit can help provide predictable, guaranteed income, no matter how long you or your spouse lives. Joint-life income can help protect couples from the risk of reduced income when a spouse dies. Market return risk Life expectancy in years at given age * Age Male Female As you plan for retirement, you may question what happens if you experience poor market returns early in retirement. Industry experts consider the five years before and the five years after retirement an especially critical phase for your retirement savings. This 10-year period is often referred to as the retirement risk zone because short-term losses in the years leading up to retirement have a limited time to recover before you begin to rely on them for income. The shorter the recovery period before and after your retirement date, the greater the negative effect these losses have on your ability to sustain income for life. Retirement Retirement risk zone risk zone *Source: Life expectancy, by age group and sex. Statistics Canada, 2002 Hypothetical policy market value Saving years Retirement risk zone Retirement income years Age Retirement date For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. The lifetime income benefit helps get you through the retirement risk zone by guaranteeing the starting value on which your lifetime income amount will be based. You can increase your income amount through bonuses earned in every year you defer making a withdrawal prior to taking an income. 5

6 Take control of your income The lifetime income benefit puts you in control of your retirement savings and income by guaranteeing your income for life. Your income won t decrease regardless of how the segregated funds perform, which provides you with protection against the risks of longevity, inflation, and market returns and volatility. Guaranteed income for life life Hypothetical policy market value $550,000 $500,000 $450,000 $400,000 $350,000 $300,000 $250,000 $200,000 $150,000 $100,000 Even if the policy market value drops to $0, you are guaranteed to continue receiving payments for the rest of your life. $50,000 $25,000 $0 Age 65 Guaranteed income for life For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. The lifetime income benefit option offers a lifetime income amount, which will never decrease provided excess withdrawals are not taken. Is it right for you? The lifetime income benefit is just one component of a well-diversified retirement income portfolio. It s most appropriate for people getting ready to retire and retirees looking for secure predictable, guaranteed income. You and your spouse, if applicable, must be age 50 and under age 91 to add the lifetime income benefit to a segregated fund policy. Information at your fingertips Visit lifetimeincome.greatwestlife.com for more information about the features and advantages of the lifetime income benefit. The lifetime income benefit works best for people who do not already have guaranteed retirement income. Guaranteed income comes from government benefits, company pension plans or life annuities. You should allocate only a portion of your retirement income portfolio to the lifetime income benefit. You will want to keep some funds easily accessible for emergencies and other needs that arise. The lifetime income benefit doesn t allow you to take out extra money without penalties. Work with your financial security advisor to develop a savings and income plan that s appropriate for you. He or she can show you how the lifetime income benefit may help you to meet your retirement goals. 6

7 With the lifetime income benefit, you re guaranteed income for life, whether you live to 85, 105 or Guaranteed income for life beyond. Your income will not decrease, regardless of how the segregated funds No matter how long you or your spouse live perform. The Great-West Life lifetime income benefit provides predictable, guaranteed income for life, starting as early as age 50, unlike other policies that don t start distributing income until age 65. The lifetime income amount is based on your age; this makes you eligible for higher income payments as you get older. When you select joint-life income, the lifetime income amount is based on an income percentage that corresponds with your current age (or your spouse, if applicable). When you add the lifetime income benefit, your eligible lifetime income amount is the market value of your policy multiplied by the income percentage corresponding to your current age. The percentage used to calculate the lifetime income amount increases with age. Age used to calculate income Single-life income percentage Joint-life income percentage 50 to % 3.50% 55 to % 3.75% 60 to % 4.00% 65 to % 4.50% 70 to % 4.75% % 5.50% You may be able to increase your income through deferral bonuses and resets. 7

8 Five per cent annual deferral bonus Increase your lifetime income with deferral bonuses With the lifetime income benefit, you are eligible to earn a five per cent deferral bonus every year until you make a withdrawal. If you don t need to take income right away, the deferral bonus can help you grow your lifetime income amount even when markets are down. Once you begin taking an income, you are no longer eligible for deferral bonuses. If you stop taking income, you will only be eligible for deferral bonuses again when your policy value exceeds your lifetime income withdrawal base. Important: Deferral bonuses are not a guaranteed rate of return. They have no cash value and do not increase any applicable maturity or death guarantee benefits. Deferral bonuses increase your eligible lifetime income amount. Bonuses can add up You can increase your income amount through bonuses earned in every year you defer making a withdrawal before you start taking an income. Bonuses increase the lifetime income withdrawal base, which help determine the lifetime income amount available to you. For example: If you contribute a premium of $200,000 to your policy and defer income for 10 years, your lifetime income withdrawal base will have a minimum value of $300,000 because of deferral bonuses. 8

9 Income resets Increase your lifetime income amount with resets As policy values increase, you have the potential to secure those gains to increase your lifetime income amount. Your lifetime income amount will not decrease regardless of how the segregated funds perform. Key features of income resets Can occur every three years Lifetime income amount will increase when a reset is applied Resets are available for the life of the policy Income resets do not increase the maturity or death benefit guarantees How income resets work This example shows how the lifetime income withdrawal base is increased every three years when the policy value is greater than the existing lifetime income withdrawal base. Income reset option Income reset option Hypothetical policy market value Reset New guarantee amount Years Hypothetical market value Lifetime income withdrawal base For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. Secure growth with automatic income resets Once your lifetime income withdrawal base increases, it is guaranteed for life regardless of any future down markets, assuming no excess withdrawals are made. 9

10 Market conditions don t affect your retirement income Jack, age 65, is planning his retirement income. He has a certain amount of guaranteed income from his company s pension plan and decides to allocate $500,000 from his savings to a policy with the lifetime income benefit. He starts taking income immediately. Based on Jack s age and initial premium, he is guaranteed to receive an annual lifetime income amount of $25,000 (five per cent of $500,000). Scenario Taking income in a down market Even if the market value of his policy is reduced because of a market downturn, the lifetime income benefit still guarantees Jack income for life. After 16 years, Jack s policy market value reduces to $0. However, thanks to the lifetime income benefit, he continues to receive $25,000 a year. $500,000 $400,000 $300,000 $200,000 Taking income in a down market Hypothetical policy market value Annual income $300,000 $240, Lifetime income amount (years) For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. $65,000 $55,000 $45,000 $35,000 $25,000 minimum guaranteed income for life Scenario Taking income in an up market When markets and segregated funds in Jack s policy perform well, Jack can take advantage of income resets and higher income percentages. $1,000,000 $800,000 $600,000 $400,000 Taking income in an up market Hypothetical policy market value $25,000 $26,545 $50,570 minimum guaranteed income for life As mentioned above, Jack s annual lifetime income $15,000 amount starts at $25,000. However, every three years, Jack s policy can reset his Lifetime income amount (years) income to a higher amount, For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. if the market value on that date multiplied by his income percentage results in a higher lifetime income amount. Even when taking income, Jack benefits from income resets every three years. In this example, by year 18, Jack s policy value grows to $842,833. His income percentage is six per cent, which results in an income of $50,570. If the segregated funds in his policy continue to perform well, his income could continue to increase. $26,797 $31,580 $34,681 $44,069 $50,570 $75,000 $60,000 $30,000 10

11 Market conditions don t affect your savings Nancy, age 50, wants to retire within 15 years. As a small business owner without a pension plan, she allocates $200,000 of her savings to the lifetime income benefit. This allows her to take advantage of the guarantees, income resets and deferral bonuses that may increase her lifetime income amount. Nancy s initial premium establishes a lifetime income withdrawal base of $200,000. For every year she defers taking income, she benefits from a five per cent deferral bonus. However, if Nancy decides to take income, she could still be eligible for a deferral bonus again when lifetime income withdrawal base resets to a higher amount. The bonus is a notional amount that, when added to her lifetime income withdrawal base, increases the lifetime income amount she is guaranteed to receive. Deferral bonuses have no cash value. Scenario Deferring income in a down market Deferring income in a down market As Nancy approaches her retirement $450,000 date, she can decide to receive a $400,000 lifetime income amount at any time. For $350,000 example, at age 65, her lifetime income $300,000 amount is $17,000 per year (five per $250,000 cent of $340,000). This annual amount $200,000 is guaranteed for life and could $150,000 increase. In this down market, however, $100,000 $50,000 Nancy is concerned about the poor $0 segregated fund returns her policy has been experiencing. She decides to stay Years in business and let the annual deferral Lifetime income withdrawal base Deferral bonus Hypothetical policy market value bonus continue, so she can increase her For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. income when she retires. Fortunately for Nancy, even in down markets her lifetime income amount is guaranteed, and it can grow through deferral bonuses. Through deferral bonuses of $10,000 accumulated over 20 years, Nancy s lifetime income withdrawal base grows to $400,000. The lifetime income amount available to Nancy when she retires at age 70 is $21,000 (5.25 per cent of $400,000). She is guaranteed to receive this amount every year for the rest of her life. Nancy could have deferred even longer because there is no maximum deferral period. Scenario Deferring income in an up market Deferring income in an up market If Nancy retires at 65 after several years of policy growth, she can benefit from both deferral bonuses and income resets. Income resets can occur as often as every three years. They can lock-in market growth and increase the lifetime income amount. They can also increase the amount of deferral bonus Nancy receives. $0 In this example, Nancy can start receiving more than $32,000 per year Years at age 65. However, if she waits five Lifetime income withdrawal base Deferral bonus Hypothetical policy market value more years and enjoys continued For illustration purposes only. Policy market value is hypothetical only and not indicative of future performance. positive segregated fund performance, her starting income can be much higher. In this example, if Nancy retires at age 70, her lifetime income withdrawal base is $986,159 because of deferral bonuses and policy market value resets. Nancy is now guaranteed to receive $51,773 every year for the rest of her life. $1,200,000 $1,000,000 $800,000 $600,000 $400,000 $200,000 $21,000 minimum guaranteed income for life 5.25% x $400,000 $51,773 minimum guaranteed income for life 5.25% x $986,159 11

12 Payments from registered policies Legislated minimum payments When you convert your registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) into registered retirement income fund (RRIF) you are required to take minimum annual payments. The lifetime income benefit was designed to provide income for life, regardless of RRIF payments. You can meet the legal requirements of the minimum annual payment schedule, and still be guaranteed an annual income even if the market value of your policy is reduced to zero. In each calendar year, you may withdraw the greater of the RRIF minimum or the lifetime income amount. If you select joint-life income, the RRIF minimum must be based on the younger spouse s age. If your legislated minimum exceeds the lifetime income amount, the legislated minimum will be paid to you. These payments are not treated as excess withdrawals. For example: If the lifetime income amount is $10,000, but the RRIF minimum is $12,000, you would receive $12,000 to meet the legislative minimum. However, it s not considered an excess withdrawal, so your guaranteed lifetime income amount remains intact. If you withdrew any amount above $12,000, it would be an excess withdrawal, which negatively affects your lifetime income amount. Currently, only 75/75 or 75/100 guarantee policies offer the lifetime income benefit option. The policy must be a: Non-registered policy RRSP and spousal RRSP RRIF and spousal RRIF Prescribed retirement income fund (PRIF) Saskatchewan and Manitoba only Locked-in retirement account (LIRA) Saskatchewan only 12 12
