First, let's discuss a general definition of annuities. An annuity is a financial product that functions as an agreement between a person and an insurance company. Whoever is buying the annuity makes a lump sum payment to the company and the company agrees to make payments back to the owner at a predetermined time. Relating to when these payouts occur, there are two basic types of annuities: deferred and immediate. Deferred annuities feature payouts that are pushed aside to a later date; the payouts of immediate annuities can start immediately.
There are four types of annuities: variable, immediate, fixed and fixed index. All of them share certain traits. Annuities operate as a contract between an individual and a financial institution. After paying a premium for a predetermined amount of time, the financial institution will return this investment (with interest) in a lump sum or incremental payments. Any investment into an annuity is tax deferred.
