proud to launch the improved version of SecurOption – Lifetime Retirement Income, the guaranteed lifetime
retirement income option of its group retirement plans.

SecurOption is a simple, innovative and distinctive option offered in the iA Financial Group’s DPSPs and group
RRSPs. It allows members to build guaranteed lifetime retirement income the amount of which is known in
advance, through their accumulation plan. The first version of SecurOption made iA Financial Group a leader in
group retirement plans offering income security. With its new solution, which provides an increase to the
annuity based on the amount as well as the complete integration of data in all its tools, iA Financial Group meets
