Annual Premium Annuity


Annual premium annuity means investing equal amounts in installments annually under an annuity plan. This allows investors to save in parts. The total amount invested keeps growing until withdrawals are made.


Annuity plans work like pension plans. They provide income after a specified time. There is no limit on the annual premium paid. One can top the annual premium annuity amount at any given time. The increased annual premium will generate a higher annuity amount in the future.
