A financial contract between an insurance company and the policy holder (purchaser) that provides for a series of payments at regular intervals to be received for a number of years or over a lifetime. Earnings of annuities grow tax-free until payouts begin, which is usually around 65. Annuities are hybrids of insurance and investments. Examples include variable, fixed, deferred, and market value adjusted.
