Interest Rates Continue their Climb in 2022, What will this Mean for Future Lump Sums at AT&T?

Feb 22, 2022 4:16:50 PM
written by The Retirement Group

Could Lump-Sums for AT&T employees be on the decline? The November interest rates,  which AT&T uses to determine lump sum values for everyone who retires in 2022 were released in December. We now have new monthly segment rates which show that interest rates are continuing to rise. Rates have been steadily increasing over the past year and with the recent announcement of next year's interest rates we are very likely to see a reduction in lump-sum values for AT&T employees who retire in 2023. AT&T interest rates decreased in 2020 causing 2021 lump sums to hit record highs. Based on the current trend of interest rates and monetary policy announcements it is likely that rates seen in 2020 will be the lowest for the foreseeable future - meaning that the Lump Sum Values for AT&T employees who retired in 2021 will likely be the highest for the foreseeable future. When interest rates move up or down, your pension lump sum amount will move in an inverse relationship.

Now that you've made after-tax contributions to your AT&T 401(k) retirement plan, it could be time to go a step further and create a potential tax-free income stream for your retirement.

By changing your after-tax balance to Roth this year, you might effectively avoid paying taxes on future profits.

What is a Roth in-plan conversion?

You may use this tool to convert your 401(k) plan's after-tax balance to Roth funds. Any investment earnings taxes linked with your after-tax contributions must be paid when you convert to Roth savings.
