An annuity gives you a guaranteed income for life, and is commonly purchased at retirement. Using a lump sum from your pension fund or savings to buy an annuity means you don't need to worry about budgeting for an unknown period of time. As one of the UK's leading providers of annuities we understand what matters and can tailor an annuity for you.
Remember, you can buy your annuity from any provider - it doesn't have to be from the people you have your pension plan or fund with. The amount of income you'll get from your annuity will vary between insurance companies, so it's well worth comparing different options before you decide.
Find out how much income you could get from your pension fund and understand the different annuity options available with our Retirement Income Calculator. Remember to include any lifestyle or medical conditions - you could qualify for higher income.
