An annuity is a product that can provide you with a lifetime income, typically on retirement. You pay a lump sum to an insurance company and in return receive regular payments for an agreed period. With a life annuity, you would receive payments for the rest of your life whereas with a deferred annuity, your insurer will not start giving you money until either a specified later date, or when you reach a certain age.
