This is the standard type of annuity. A conventional annuity pays you a guaranteed annuity income for the rest of your life, regardless of what happens to interest rates or investment markets in the future.
Your chosen annuity provider takes on the future risk of providing you with a guaranteed annuity income in return for the money you saved into your pension fund during your working life. The annuity rate you receive reflects the current market conditions when you take out your annuity. A conventional annuity assumes you have no particular health or lifestyle conditions.
You may be eligible for higher annuity rates through an enhanced annuity depending on your health and lifestyle conditions. Read more about enhanced annuities here.
