An annuity contract paid by a single payment and with a specified payment plan that starts immediately after the contract is purchased.

Immediate Annuity

An annuity that the annuitant purchases with a lump sum payment and from which he/she begins to receive payments immediately. An annuitant often buys an immediate annuity after he/she has reached retirement age and wishes to receive his/her savings or other money in an organized manner. An immediate annuity may either be fixed or variable; that is, payments may remain constant throughout the life of the annuity (or the annuitant's natural life) or they may change according to the performance of the investments made by the lump sum payment. See also: Deferred annuity.
