Help me choose an annuity

Aviva offers you a range of annuities which offer different benefits and these are summarised on this page.

Are you buying your annuity with money from your pension fund?
Yes button

I want a guaranteed income for life, based on the value of my pension fund. I also want to choose whether my income stays the same or increases each year.

I may qualify for a higher income due to a previous or existing medical condition my partner or I have.

Pension Annuity

I would like an annuity providing an income for life that is guaranteed not to fall below a certain level, and which also provides growth potential. I accept that there will be some risks involved.

With Profits Pension Annuity

I have money to invest from my tax free cash lump sum or from other non-pension sources (savings/investments/inheritance).
