Athene Annuity First to Market with Enhanced Repetitive Payout Service from Infosys McCamish Systems
Infosys McCamish Systems LLC, an Infosys BPO company, today announced that Athene Annuity’s MaxRetiresm SPIA product is the first to utilize the new Repetitive Payment Management (RPM) functionality that augments its VPAS® platform.
Systems has been providing end-to-end platform based BPO services to Athene’s fixed and fixed indexed annuities since 2006.
The enhanced service offering allows for products to be configured and deployed
without the need for development, leading to improved speed to market for our carriers.
It allows them to provide innovative new payout products and riders quickly to the
growing annuity market based on the ease of the product configuration.
Given that tax regulations and product features for the qualified and non-qualified
annuity market are built into the platform, the VPAS® RPM solution supports qualified and non-qualified contracts with single and joint life options, with guarantee periods, if desired, as well as period certain options.
RPM offers robust fee deductions, optional payee elections, automated exclusion ratio calculations and easily supports multiple calculation methods.
The component lowers the risks and costs to carriers by providing one platform for accumulation and repetitive payout/ disbursement processing, since a single platform eliminates the need to issue a new policy on a separate platform when the contract annuitizes.
It enables seamless and automated processing using online product calculation engine for payout processing.
