What Exactly Is an Annuity?
An annuity is a contractural investment product created and sold by financial institutions, which accept and invest funds from individuals and then, upon the "annuitization" phase, they issue a stream of payments at a later point in time. They were originally designed to be a reliable form
of steady income for an individual during later years in life. Sometimes annuities are also utilized to turn a substantial lump sum into steady income for winners of a lottery or other legal proceedings.
Types Of Annuities
Annuities can be set up according to many factors, such as duration of time that the payments are guaranteed to continue. Annuities can be set up so that upon the "annuitization"
phase, the payments will remain so long as the annuitant or their spouse is alive if the proper survivorship benefit is selected. Annuities can also be fixed to payout over a pre determined period
such as 25 years no matter how long the annuitant lives. The payouts can begin as soon as the lump sum is deposited and the payments are structured. RightWay undertsands these often
confusing terms and can help you to understand your options when it comes to selling your payments.
Annuities can be set up as either "Fixed" or "Variable".
Fixed annuities provide regular payments of a fixed amount over a given amount of time to the annuitant.
Variable annuities can allow the annuitant
to receive greater cash flows depending on the performance of the investments for the annuity fund, on the other hand they can also lead to smaller payments when the investments for the annuity fund are down.
Structured settlements are another annuity product utilized to award the victim of a personal injury case, malpractice or other lawsuit. This type of annuity is often used by the court system.
They force the reliable party to put a lump sum into an annuity product to issue regular payments as an award for the lawsuit. RightWay can show you how to sell some or all of your payments from a structured settlement.

Annuities are often issued for an inheritance from a relative or other loved one, sometimes annuities are set up so that the payments stop upon the death of the annuitant unless a rider was purchased that allows them to designate a beneficiary for continued payments from the annuity.
