In planning your retirement, income can come from many sources. If one of your financial goals is to create a guaranteed income, then you should consider a payout annuity.
Payout annuities can be purchased from either registered or non-registered savings. Once purchased, payout annuities provide income either for a chosen term (a term-certain annuity) or for life (a life annuity).
You may find it helpful to ask yourself the following questions about your future income needs:
- Are you more concerned with meeting living expenses or preserving the capital of your estate?
- Are your future retirement income needs and sources of income predictable?
- Is there a possibility your income requirements may change?
- Will non-registered investments be a source of future income?
If you question whether you might outlive your retirement savings, then a life annuity might be the answer for you. Life annuities are designed to protect you from outliving your investments, because they guarantee an income for life. Additionally, you may purchase a payout annuity for a specific term, known as a term-certain annuity.
