What is an Annuity?

An annuity is a contractual agreement between you (the Annuitant) and an insurance company in which you make a lump-sum payment(s) and, in return, receive regular payouts, beginning either immediately or at some point in the future. The payouts continue as a regular stream of income to you as the annuitant and ceases in the event of your unfortunate demise. 

What Is The Purpose Of An Annuity?

When you retire, it is critical to have in place a reliable source of income as it:

  • Enables you to sustain the kind of lifestyle that you were used to during your active working years. 
  • Ensures that you will have a steady stream of income in retirement; for life or for a preferred number of years (e.g. 5, 10, 15 or 20).
  • Cushions you against the possibility of outliving the initial investment (capital) you paid to the annuity provider

Helpful Tips

The lump sum one uses to purchase an annuity could come from your accumulated savings during your active working years in investment solutions such as a Personal Retirement Scheme. An Annuity is not to be confused with an Income Drawdown even though both are retirement income solutions.
