||Single Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA)It’s an annuity that can help you get a guaranteed and reliable stream of income. You can purchase a SPIA with a lump sum of money and it can start paying out immediately or within the year. With this type of income annuity, you can choose to get guaranteed payments for life, for a set guaranteed period or both.
Deferred Income Annunity (DIA)
A deferred income annuity (“DIA,” and also sometimes referred to as a longevity annuity), is a contract between you and an insurance company. You give a lump-sum payment to the insurance company in exchange for guaranteed lifetime income that begins at a future date, up to forty years later in some cases. Deferred income annuities can serve as a sort of pension for those investors without an employer’s defined benefit plan. Deferred income annuities work similarly to immediate annuities, except that the payments don’t start immediately.
