What is an Annuity?

An annuity is a plan that makes payments to you on a regular basis. It might be a general annuity, a payment from a registered retirement income fund (RRIF), or a variable pension payment. These payments are part of your total income and are reported on your tax return.

Annuity options

The Manulife Principal Protected AnnuityTM is a Life Annuity option that provides you with principal protection by ensuring the money invested will always be received as income to you or as a legacy for beneficiaries.

Life Annuities will provide you with guaranteed, regular income for life. They can be purchased as a single life, based on one person’s life, or as a joint and survivor, based on the lives of two people.

Term Certain Annuities provide investors with guaranteed, regular income for a selected period of time. Once this period is over, income payments cease and the annuity contract ends.

Prescribed Annuities offer preferential tax treatment if you are investing using non-registered funds. Each payment includes the same amount of interest and capital. This evens out the amount subject to tax and provides some tax deferral. A Manulife Annuity may qualify as “prescribed.”
