Video On Allstate IncomeProtector(SM) Annuity Explains Retirement Income Savings Option In Easy-to-Understand Terms

Stocks in this article: ALL

NORTHBROOK, Ill., Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Some of us are visual learners – we remember things better when we see them in writing. Others are auditory learners – we learn more by hearing an explanation. An Allstate video appealing to both types of learners has attracted new attention to the complex topic of annuities.

"Insurance in general and annuities in particular can be difficult to understand," said Bob Becker, Allstate senior vice president, Allstate Life Insurance Company. "In response, we created a video about our new Allstate IncomeProtector SM annuity to explain retirement income savings options through visuals and the announcer's step-by-step discussion of our annuity's features in easy-to-understand terms. The video works for both visual and auditory learners. We're enthusiastic about our customers' positive reaction to this approach." 

The video, posted online at, begins by pointing out common retirement worries: losing your savings if markets decline, not having a predictable and reliable income stream or even outliving your money in retirement. The video then discusses various aspects of the Allstate IncomeProtector annuity that can address these retirement concerns, including guaranteed lifetime income, principal protection and bonuses under certain circumstances, which vary by state and are offered at the discretion of the company.

"My customers have given the video rave reviews, it's been featured on agent websites and in seminars all over the country, and it's had more than 5,000 views on YouTube in just the past few weeks," said Troy Trahan, an Allstate exclusive financial specialist in Louisiana. "While a six-minute video can't tell you everything you need to know about retirement planning, it's a great way to build your knowledge about the products and features available to help you achieve a more secure future."

For more information on the Allstate IncomeProtector annuity, contact your local Allstate agency. Additional information about retirement planning can be found online at
