What is RetireOne's Constance product?


It's a Contingent Deferred Annuity

Constance provides a lifetime withdrawal guarantee on a pool of assets maintained on qualifying custodian platforms.


It's a Portfolio Retirement Income Guarantee

Their proprietary technology unbundles annuity insurance protections from underlying investments. This allows you to use Constance to transfer risk to an insurance company without moving assets.

And since you may choose qualified or non-qualified assets to cover, the insurance coverage does not change the tax status of the covered assets.


It's used in Wealthcare Models

Using specific Constance Pure Gamma and Constance Resilient Wealthcare Models you can deliver income for life even if the covered assets are depleted (subject to the claims paying ability of the insurance company).   Please read the Account Maintenance Form below before you begin.


*The Constance product is not available to LPL Hybrid advisors at this time.
