Immediate Payment Annuity
- An annuity contract where income payments are paid immediately after the annuity has been purchased, usually after a single upfront payment. Immediate payment annuities are generally purchased by senior citizens or those nearing retirement age because only a single payment is required for the annuity to be set up instead of a series of payments over a long period of time. Also known as an "immediate annuity" or an "income annuity."
dividend, payment without delay
