It is a well known fact that among all annuity policies, life annuity is considered to be the best investment product which people must buy in order to get a financially secured future. In this annuity the individual is required to pay a specified sum of money to the insurance company initially and then after a certain period of time he or she will receive a regular income for his or her entire lifetime. This income is provided by the insurance company to the individual on the basis of his or her age, gender, state of health, type of annuity, rate of interest and annuity rate.

There are many types of life annuity, they are:

Straight Life: This is the most simple type of life annuity and very easy to understand. It provides predetermined income to the individual regularly every month and the most important benefit of straight life annuity is that it is cheaper in comparison to other types of annuities.

Standard Health: This type of life annuity is most beneficial for the people who are not in proper state of health. But this type of annuity is expensive because the insurance company has to bear greater financial risk.
