Brighthouse Financial Joins BlackRock in Announcing LifePath Paycheck™

Brighthouse Financial will provide more U.S. workers with access to lifetime retirement income

CHARLOTTE, NC, April 24, 2024

Brighthouse Financial, Inc. (“Brighthouse Financial”) (Nasdaq: BHF) today joined BlackRock, Inc. (“BlackRock”) in announcing BlackRock’s LifePath PaycheckTM solution is now available in defined contribution plans. Brighthouse Financial is one of two insurers that have been selected by BlackRock as it delivers LifePath PaycheckTM, which is designed to provide millions of American workers with simplified access to lifetime income throughout their retirement.

“Brighthouse Financial is excited to work with BlackRock on BlackRock’s LifePath Paycheck solution, which offers more U.S. workers an opportunity to access a guaranteed income stream in retirement,” said Eric Steigerwalt, president and CEO, Brighthouse Financial. “As a company whose mission is to help people achieve financial security, we are pleased to assist even more Americans with preparing for retirement through LifePath Paycheck.”

LifePath Paycheck™ is a target date strategy that will over time include an allocation to innovative annuity contracts. In a significant breakthrough for the industry, these annuity contracts, to be issued by certain Brighthouse Financial insurance subsidiaries and another selected insurer, will not limit the daily liquidity of the target date strategy and will ultimately provide plan participants with the option to redeem a portion of their plan account balance to purchase fixed individual retirement annuities directly from the insurers that will provide guaranteed lifetime income. The solution is available for U.S. employers to provide to their employees through their defined contribution retirement plans.
