Pension Design and Structure

John Ameriks

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines mechanisms used by retired and retiring individuals in a defined contribution pension plan to finance retirement income flows. The study draws on the mechanisms used by Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association-College of Retirement Equities Fund participants. The introduction of non-annuity income options led to a decline in the use of immediate life-contingent annuity payments. The types of income options chosen by participants varied over time and demographic characteristics.

Keywords:   defined contribution plan, retirement income, income payments, non-annuity options
