Select™ Portfolio Income Annuities 


Two new patent-pending solutions from Northwestern Mutual can help you create a predictable income stream during retirement. Portfolio Income Annuities provide guaranteed income1 for as long as you live, and they have the potential to grow through dividends.2

A unique feature of a Portfolio Income Annuity is that your income payments can increase with potential dividends. Whenever dividends are paid, you have the flexibility to take them in cash each year or use them to increase your lifetime income payments, or a combination of the two. You can fund these annuities with a single premium payment including rollovers from a 401(k), IRA, Roth IRA, or a savings account, inheritance or sale of a business or property.

Northwestern Mutual offers a Select Portfolio Immediate Income Annuity and a Select Portfolio Deferred Income Annuity. Both have flexible options to meet your personal needs.

  • Guaranteed, predictable income payments can last as long as you live.
  • Income payments can start when you are ready.
    • The Portfolio Immediate Annuity offers you an income start date of up to 13 months in the future.
    • The Portfolio Deferred Income Annuity offers you an income start date in which payments can begin in 13 months or decades in the future.
  • The initial guaranteed income payments start with a fixed amount, and your payments will never go below this amount for the rest of your life or the lives of you and a loved one.3
  • You have flexibility on how to use your potential dividends – take as cash4 or use it to increase your guaranteed lifetime income payments, or a combination of the two.
