Jackson DASH Site Featuring the Retirement Expense & Income Calculator Tool

In July 2018, Jackson launched its Digital Advisor Success Hub (DASH), an online destination where financial professionals can leverage numerous interactive tools and creative, consumer-friendly content and videos focused on important annuity-related topics including tax-deferral benefits, protected lifetime income and more. In July 2019, Jackson launched its Retirement Expense & Income Calculator on the site, which is designed to help financial professionals effectively project their clients’ retirement expenses based on the federal government’s Consumer Expenditures Survey data. By entering a few data points, such as current income, retirement age and retirement state, financial professionals can generate a custom client report that is personalized to the financial professional and client.
