What Is An Immediate Annuity

An immediate annuity begins paying out income to the annuitant shortly after the initial investment is made. Unlike deferred annuities, which have an accumulation phase where the funds grow before payouts begin, immediate annuities provide an immediate stream of income.

The annuitant typically makes a lump-sum payment to the insurance company, and in return, receives regular payments for a specified period or for life. Immediate annuities are commonly used by retirees looking for a steady and predictable source of income to cover living expenses during retirement. They offer the advantage of immediate income without the need to wait for an accumulation period to pass.
