What would you like to do?
Perhaps you meant a "non-qualified" annuity? If so, a nq annuity is an annuity purchased with after-tax dollars; conversely, a qualified annuity is one purchased with pre-tax dollars, such as in an IRA or a TSA.

There can be a few different definitions but in short as it applies to insurance or financial services: = Two Main Annuity Types: Immediate and Deferre…d = The difference between deferred and immediate annuities is just about what you'd think. With an Immediate Annuity your income payments start right away (technically, anytime within 12 months of purchase). You choose whether you want income guaranteed for a specific number of years or for your lifetime. The insurance company calculates the amount of each income payment based on your purchase amount and your life expectancy. A deferred annuity has two phases: the accumulation phase, where you let your money grow for a while, and the payout phase. During accumulation, your money grows tax-deferred until you take it out, either as a lump sum or as a series of payments. You decide when to take income from your annuity and therefore, when to pay the taxes. Gaining increased control over your taxes is one of the key benefits of annuities. The payout phase begins when you decide to take income from your annuity. For most people, this is during retirement. As your needs dictate, you can take partial withdrawals, completely cash-out (surrender) your annuity, or convert your deferred annuity into a stream of income payments (annuitization). This last option is essentially the same as buying an immediate annuity.
Technically, the term "annuity" means "a series of payments over time, where the original investment and interest will be distributed over the annuity payout period". However,… most people, when they use the term "annuity" are referring to a COMMERCIAL ANNUITY - a contract between an issuing insurance company and the purchaser. There are two basic types of commercial annuities: IMMEDIATE - These contracts guarantee an income for either a specified period of time ("Period Certain" annuities) or for the life of the "annuitant" ("Life Annuities"). The annuitant is the person whose age and sex determines the amount of the annuity payments. An immediate annuity may be "fixed" (guaranteeing a specified amount of money each year) or "variable" (guaranteeing an income, the amount of which will vary with the investment performance of the investment accounts chosen by the purchaser). DEFERRED - These contracts have two phases: (a) the Accumulation phase, during which the annuity will earn interest, and (b) the Payout phase, during which payments will be made to the annuitant either for a specified period or for life (the payout phase acts like, and is taxed like, an immediate annuity). Deferred annuities may be either "fixed" (where principal and a minimum rate of interest is guaranteed) or "variable" (where the value of the contract will vary with the investment performance of the accounts chosen by the purchaser. For more information, see "The Advisor's Guide to Annuities" by John Olsen and Michael Kitces (National Underwriter Co., 3rd ed., 2012) Answer 2 . Series of payments at fixed intervals, guaranteed for a fixed number of years or the lifetime of one or more individuals . . Similar to a pension , the money is paid out of an investment contract under which the annuitant(s) deposit certain sums (in a lump sum or in installments) with an annuity guarantor (usually a government agency or an insurance firm). . The amount paid back includes principal and interest , either or both of which (depending on the local regulations ) may be tax exempt . An annuity is not an insurance policy but a tax-shelter . While the interest component (the taxable portion) of a regular annuity payment may be exempt from local or state taxes, it is never, under current law, exempt from Federal income tax. Moreover, to say that an annuity is a "tax shelter", rather than an "insurance policy" is not quite correct. First, an annuity is not a tax shelter, as that term is ordinarily used, because it does not EXEMPT any otherwise taxable income from Federal tax; it merely provides tax DEFERRAL. Moreover, many components of an annuity are, in fact, INSURANCE. An annuity contract is not LIFE INSURANCE, and does not enjoy the same tax treatment of a life insurance policy (e.g.: an income tax free death benefit), but the RISK TRANSFER characteristics of an annuity are certainly "insurance".

Most SPDA have surrender charges for 7-10 years. Also most allow you to take only 10% of the total amount during the surrender period. Also you would be hit with a 10% tax …penalty if under 59 1/2 and it would be taxable income for that year. Using a 529 plan from your state would be a better way to pay for college.
You mean qualified. It refers to the tax status of the funds inside it. If funds are qualified that is IRS/investment lingo for pre tax money, such as money in a 401K, I…RA, or 403b. Non qualified obviously is money that income tax has already been paid on. Taxes in an annuity are defered until you use the money. In a qualified annuity all of the money would be subject to income tax upon withdrawal. In a non qualified annuity only the gains would be taxed. But since it is tax deferred you pay your income tax rate, not capital gains taxes. The original amount invested is not subject to tax when you withdraw it.

Please clarify what country you are talking about. Different countries have different tax laws. Taxation rules for a nonqualified annuity owned by individuals subject to Unit…ed States tax jurisdiction are contained in Internal Revenue Service Publication 17. A nonqualified annuity is funded with after tax dollars and accordingly the tax basis for all contributions is zero. Any contract gains made above the tax basis are generally taxed at ordinary income tax rates. The primary advantage of a nonqualified annuity is the benefit of allowing savings to grow on a tax deferred basis. In an ordinary savings or stock account all realized capital gains, dividends, and interest are taxed on a yearly basis. In a nonqualfied annuity account gains can compound tax free over time until funds are withdrawn. Different tax rules apply depending on whether the annuity holder takes a withdrawal or an annuitization payment. When a withdrawal is made from a nonqualified annuity gains are considered to be distributed first and will be fully taxable. For example, an individual holding a nonqualified annuity with an account balance of $200,000 consisting of $150,000 of after tax contributions and $50,000 in gains would owe ordinary income tax on $50,000 of a $70,000 withdrawal. The remaining $20,000 would be tax free since it represents part of the cost basis comprised of after tax contributions. When an owner of a nonqualfied annuity chooses to receive annuity payments each year part of the payment will be comprised of a tax-free return of his basis and part taxable gain. The rules can become very complex and exceptions to the general rule cited above exist for contracts issued prior to August 14, 1982. In addition to possible taxation of withdrawals a penalty tax of 10% is assessed on money withdrawn before the age of 59 1/2. If the account owner dies with gains in the nonqualified annuity the beneficiary will inherit the tax basis of the decedent and owe ordinary income taxes on the distribution of any gains.
