How Retirement Annuities Work
An annuity is a financial contract between an insurance carrier and a purchaser. In general, the purchaser is either an investor or a retiree.
You can purchase annuities via monthly payments toward the principal amount or through a lump sum. In return, income will be paid out through either a one-time sum or a series of regular payments. The purpose is the provision of a guaranteed income stream.
These financial products are set up over a particular length of time, or conditional to the annuity holder’s death. Annuities are tax-deferred, which means that they are not subject to taxation until you withdraw them. They also generate interest over time.

Annuities to suit your lifestyle.
Annuities can be a valuable investment, but there are risks to consider. Our experts will help you decipher the different types of annuities so you can decide whether this type of investment is right for you.
How do they work?
Annuities are the main way of turning a pot of cash into an income stream. In very simple terms, they work like a life insurance policy in reverse-you pay them a lump sum upfront, then they pay you regularly until you die.
What are the risks involved?
There are two specific types of risk with annuities. The first is the risk that you die early and, thus, don't receive as much money back as you paid upfront.
Available in fixed and variable options.
The second risk only applies to some forms of annuities. You can get annuities that pay a fixed amount, often based on factors such as your age, gender, and health status when you buy the annuity. However, you can also get variable annuities in which the insurer invests the money, meaning the amount you receive depends on the performance of the investments. To mitigate this risk, you can opt for the middle-ground of an index-linked annuity.
Are they the right investment for you?
Whether annuities are right for you and what level of risk is appropriate will depend on your financial circumstances. You'll also need to carefully consider the tax implications, particularly if you want to retire early.
