Annuity Payout Options

There are two primary forms that annuity payouts can take. Both have unique benefits, and drawbacks.

  1. Life Annuity; this format of annuity offers the highest income, but can’t be paid out to a beneficiary in the event of recipient death. There are numerous factors that may influence your maximum and minimum payments including age, sex, current interest rates, and cost of living.
  2. Term Certain Annuity; this format is payable for a fixed time that is decided by the purchaser of the annuity. The minimum and maximum payments of this format can also fluctuate based on a variety of factors.
