Substandard Health Annuity
- A type of straight life annuity arranged for individuals with medical conditions that decrease their life expectancy. Income payments are distributed at a faster pace than a normal annuity because of the annuitant's shorter lifespan. Because Substandard health annuities are a type of straight life annuity, income payments stop when the annuitant dies and no payments are made to beneficiaries.
