Annuities Types

Types of annuities


Level without guarantee

This means the income from your annuity remains the same for the rest of your life ie it will be prone to inflation.

Escalating 5% pa compound without guarantee

The income from your annuity increases by 5% each year (ie to counter inflation) but stops immediately you die.

Joint Life last survivor

When the “first life” dies (ie one partner of a couple getting the annuity pops their clogs) the annuity passes to the survivor – the second life – and continues until they die.
