The PIMCO Retirement Income Analysis Tool (“Tool”) is intended to provide you with an analysis of your client’s potential income in retirement. It is based on the data and assumptions provided by you and your client. The outcome generated by the Tool is dependent upon the accuracy of the data and reasonableness of the assumptions. Assumed rates of return may reflect other historical returns as noted and all calculations are explained within the Tool. The use of any past performance by the Tool is intended for illustrative purposes only and may not be used to predict or project future performance. Historical performance cannot be duplicated. The hypothetical retirement income values are not guaranteed.

The Tool and materials generated by it (collectively “Materials”) take into account the information that you or your client provided. In assessing the adequacy of these Materials, you should consider all assets, income and investments - such as home equity, social security benefits, IRAs, savings accounts, annuities, and other plans that may provide retirement income.

Actual results will vary due to a number of individual factors (or a combination thereof), including but not limited to: market conditions and events; changes in interest rates; assumed and actual rates of return; actual product values; participation rates; product fees and charges; taxes; inflation; political events; or, natural and man-made disasters.

The Materials should not be considered a substitute for a product illustration. Refer to the carrier's illustration for more detailed product information, including product and annuity guarantees. Illustrated rates, returns and values will vary from those shown in these materials.

Product features, limitations, fees, charges and availability may vary by state and by broker dealer. Please refer to the product specific materials and prospectus for a full explanation of how the products shown in the Materials work.
