Annuity Contract

The agreement outlining the terms of an annuity. Among other things, the contract spells out the contributions, employer matching contributions, benefit schedule, whether the annuity is fixed or variable, and what the early withdrawal penalties are. The annuitant and the insurance company agree on the annuity contract when the annuitant buys the annuity. Generally speaking, the insurance company maintains a standard set of annuity contracts to meet the needs of different annuitants.
