What is a Deferred Income Annuity?

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.

ADVISOR INSIGHT

“A deferred income annuity is a plan that will help you create a stable income stream for the future. These plans are the equivalent of buying a pension for yourself, or yourself and your spouse. With these plans, you are giving up your principal in exchange for an income stream for life or a set period of time. These plans are growing in popularity due to the fact that pensions are not as prevalent as they have been in the past.”
