Is an annuity a type of life insurance?
Answer . I know that some pension plans are funded with Annuities. Basically an annuity is a retirement vehicle that you contribute to and then when you retire, that annuit…y is then "annuitized", meaning you start to receive payments.. But it provides a safe way to invest your money, because they usually have guaranteed interest rates.
Answer . No I did not.

There are basically two risks in life - that of dying early and that of living too long. Life insurance - basically term insurance - covers the former while endowment insuranc…e covers the latter. But the question of living too long can not be easily covered by endowment insurance where the payout is immediate on the happening of the covered event, that is, maturity. The payment is in one lump sum mostly. Annuities are basically used to cover this eventuality of living too long, by paying money in installments spread over a long period of time - mostly till death. This method therefore forms the basis of pension business. The funding methods are also different - the collected fund is used to form a corpus from where the payouts are made. Therefore pension funds need long term investment avenues with good returns. After all nobody can be sure how long somebody will leave, but pension funds have to ens ure the payments till death - at the same rates as the first installment.

Whole life insurance is a product that provides a death benefit, along with a feature that allows you to build up cash value.

Life insurance protects one's beneficiaries against financial loss as a result of the purchaser's dying too soon, while annuities protect purchasers against financial loss as …a result of living longer than their funds do.
an individual who buys an annuity pays the insurance company a sum of money and, in return, will receive a monthly income for as long as the purchaser lives.
Annuity income depends on life expectancy and is thus classified as life insurance.
The cash value can be borrowed from the insurance policy and an annuity purchased with it. Depending upon the insurer, you may be able to have the two transactions done with t…he same company (assuming you wish to buy an annuity product from that company). Keep in mind, however, that the cash value withdrawal is a loan that accrues interest according to the terms of the policy. Therefore, in order to make the transaction worthwhile, the annuity must throw off sufficient income to make up for the reduction of value of the insurance policy due to accruing interest on the policy loan.
No. These are two different animals. There are variable life insurance policies as well as variable annuities. These are often tied to the results of certain type of mutual fu…nds or stock indexes but they are separate contracts.
There isn't a real difference between life annuity and an insurance annuity. Both are a form of life insurance and deal with the same issues. I would go with either one.
