Annuity Basics

Find answers by reading the questions below…

An annuity is a contract between you (the annuity holder) and an insurance company (the annuity provider). The annuity holder makes monthly premium payments or a lump-sum payment to the annuity provider. The annuity provider then agrees to pay a predetermined monthly amount to the annuity holder for the rest of their life. Annuities are primarily used to secure a steady income during retirement.
Annuities work by converting a lump sum payment into a series of payments that will be paid to the annuity holder for the remainder of their life. The payments can start at the time of purchase or at a future date. The rate of payout is determined by multiple factors.

The five main types of annuities are:

Variable Annuity 

Fixed Annuity

Deferred Annuity 

Immediate Annuity

Indexed Annuity
