Level without guarantee
This means that the income payments provided remain constant throughout the beneficiaries life.
Level guaranteed 5 years
This means that the income payments remain the same each year. But if the beneficiary dies within five years they are guaranteed to be paid for a minimum of five years. Whatever is due would be paid over to the heirs of the recipient.
Escalating 5% p.a. without guarantee
The income payments increase each year by 5% – ie so as not to lose value against inflation. However they stop being paid if the beneficiary dies ie the next of kin doesn’t get anything further.
