Will your savings go the distance?

Many Australians will spend at least 25 years in retirement. This increasing amount of time requires careful thought about whether your savings will last the distance. One way to help this is by investing in a lifetime annuity, which provides regular, secure payments guaranteed for life.

Speak to your financial adviser, visit the Challenger website or call Challenger on 13 35 66 to find out how to include guaranteed income in your plan.
