Retirement Payout Annuity
What Is A Retirement Payout Annuity?
Retirement Payout Annuity is an excellent choice. The income is guaranteed because there is no market exposure. Annuities also offer a higher income rate than many other guaranteed income products and tax advantages for non-registered funds. An annuity gives you options that bring versatility to your investments.
When you purchase a payout annuity, you turn over your retirement savings to an insurance company, which is then responsible for providing regular, fixed payments. Typically these payments are made monthly. They are a combination of a repayment of a portion of the annuity principal and income earned by the invested money.
Payments are taxable in the year they are received. Annuities often appeal to retirees who want a simple income solution that provides worry-free fixed payments that won't change throughout retirement.

How are payout annuity rates calculated?
The insurance company looks at several factors to determine payout annuity rates.
- The premium amount: the amount you want to invest.
- Type of funds (registered or non-registered)
- Type of annuity (single, joint or term certain)
- Purchase date (the date you buy the policy)
- Payment date (the date you want to receive your income)
- Extra options you select (guarantee period 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, indexing)

What are the reasons to buy an annuity?
- Peace of mind
- Guaranteed income for life
- Estate Planning
- More favorable taxation
Once you buy a payout annuity, there's no need to make any further investment decisions. An annuity gives you the security and stability you need when you retire. You'll never have to stress about what the market does or whether interest rates go up or down. Your annuity income is guaranteed.
Annuities protect against the risk that a retiree will outlive his savings. A retirement payout annuity guarantees income for the rest of your life. You`ll never run out of monthly income, no matter how long you live.
If you pass away, payments can continue to your surviving spouse, or to another beneficiary with non-registered funds.
Annuity taxation: non-registered annuity payments are a blend of interest and return of capital. A prescribed annuity is taxed more favorable than a non-registered fixed-income product. These payments can help minimize claw-back of applicable government benefits since only part of the annuity payment is considered net income for tax purposes. Non-registered annuities also help level out tax charges and yield more after-tax income up front.
