A Single-Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA) from Assurity can provide a continuous stream of income that you cannot outlive, all from one lump-sum payment.
With flexibility and guaranteed features, the Single-Premium Immediate Annuity can provide an excellent method to fund retirement from an inheritance, the sale of assets, a legal settlement, or any other financial windfall.
After the initial premium payment, you can begin receiving a monthly income, starting just one month later, and continuing for the rest of your life or for a set period of years – guaranteed.
The funds you receive can be used for many situations, such as providing periodic income to fund tuition or to supplement a student’s living expenses, or to provide for an elderly parent, or to fund care for a dependent or disabled child.
Under the right circumstances, a properly structured SPIA can provide a source of income to beneficiaries after an annuitant’s death.
You can arrange for others to receive the monthly income should you purchase an annuity with a period certain and die before the end of the period.
Additionally, there are no health restrictions for the purchase of a SPIA.
The SPIA can be issued at ages 0 through 85.
The minimum acceptable single premium is the amount necessary to purchase at least $100 of monthly annuity benefit.
Under current tax law, a portion of each payment received from an immediate non-qualified annuity will be tax-free until your total premium is recovered.
The remainder of each payment will be taxable as ordinary income in the year received.
A SPIA may be the ideal solution to many long-term financial uncertainties, providing you with a lifelong, non-exhaustible income stream.
