Converting Assets to Income
The TIAA Institute examines how annuitization may provide a way for individuals to achieve lifetime income, turning their retirement savings into an income stream that can last a lifetime.
How information is presented, or “framed,” and other personal biases affect decision-making. The TIAA Institute focuses on such issues as how to motivate people to make decisions about when to claim Social Security, whether or not to annuitize, and how to save for retirement.
The TIAA Paul A. Samuelson Award For Outstanding Scholarly Writing on Lifelong Financial Security, named in honor of the Nobel Prize-winning economist and former CREF Trustee, recognizes economic research that helps advance Americans’ lifelong financial well-being.
