How will you

spend your

retirement savings?


Get income from a

Vanguard IRA


A Vanguard IRA can provide you a great deal of flexibility when withdrawing retirement income.

• Systematic withdrawals. A disciplined, conservative withdrawal plan can be a simple but effective retirement income method. You can receive automatic direct deposits to your bank account from your IRA.

• Managed Payout Fund. Designed for IRA investors, Vanguard Managed Payout Fund provides a complete, diversified portfolio developed by professional investment managers. The fund automatically provides investors with a monthly payment while attempting to preserve the money that was originally invested. In other words, the payments are intended to consist mostly of investment gains. The monthly payment amount is based on a target annual payment of 4% of your balance. However, the fund is not guaranteed to achieve its investment objective and is subject to loss, and some of its distributions may be treated in part as a return of the money you invest.

There are important factors to consider when rolling over assets to an IRA or leaving assets in an employer retirement plan account. These factors include, but are not limited to, investment options in each type of account, fees and expenses, available services, potential

withdrawal penalties, protection from creditors and legal judgments, required minimum distributions, and tax consequences of rolling over employer stock to an IRA.

For assistance with an IRA rollover,

Monday through Friday from

8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Eastern time.

Retirement income strategies


Get income from an annuity

If you are looking to generate income that will last for your lifetime, consider using part of your savings to purchase an annuity. An income annuity provides regular income in return for a single upfront payment. The income is guaranteed by the insurance company that sells the annuity. Guarantees are subject to the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

• Vanguard Annuity Access. Powered by the Income Solutions® platform, this online tool helps you comparison shop. In just a few minutes, you’ll get customized online quotes from several highly rated insurance companies.

• Vanguard Variable Annuity. Investing in a variable annuity can provide you with guaranteed income while you retain the option to withdraw your savings. With a Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit rider, your income payments will never go down (unless you exceed your annual withdrawal amount) but have the chance to go up based on market performance. Variable annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes and contain underlying investment portfolios that are subject to risk, including

the possible loss of the money you invest. Costs will vary depending on the benefi ts chosen. If you take withdrawals from a variable annuity prior to age 59½, you may have to pay ordinary income tax plus a 10% federal penalty tax.

Get income from your plan

Many retirement plans allow you to receive automatic withdrawals directly from the plan. This approach allows you to keep your money in your soon-to-be former employer’s plan and continue to use your current investment options.

Depending on your plan’s rules, you may be able to set up withdrawals on an annual, quarterly, or monthly schedule, with the money transferred directly to your bank account.

A note about risk

All investing is subject to risk including the possible loss of the money you invest. Vanguard Managed Payout Fund is not guaranteed to achieve its investment objectives and is subject to loss, and some of its distributions may be treated in part as a return of capital. The dollar amount of the fund’s monthly cash distributions could go up or down substantially from one year to the next and over time. It is also possible for the fund to suffer substantial investment losses and simultaneously experience additional asset reductions as a result of its distributions to shareholders under its managed distribution policy. An investment in the fund could lose money over short, intermediate, or even long periods of time because the fund allocates its assets worldwide across different asset classes and investments with specific risk and return characteristics. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. The fund is proportionately subject to the risks associated with its underlying funds, which may invest in stocks (including stocks issued by REITs), bonds, cash, inflation- linked investments, commodity-linked investments, long/short

market-neutral investments, and leveraged absolute return investments. For more information about any fund or Vanguard variable annuity products, visit vanguard.com to obtain fund and variable annuity contract prospectuses. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about the product are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing. You can also write Vanguard at P.O. Box 2900, Valley Forge, PA 19482-2900.

The underlying risks, financial obligations, and support functions associated with annuity products are the responsibility of the issuing insurance company. The issuing insurance company is responsible for its own financial condition and contractual obligations.
