Comparing annuity rates updated: $QUOTEDATE$

Searching for a competitive annuity rate is an essential part of ensuring you obtain the best possible income in retirement.

Annuity rates can vary significantly and a rate table is an effective tool to compare the rates offered by providers for differing circumstances.

6 Steps To Comparing Annuity Rates
  1. Find out your pension fund value and enquire as to whether you can take any tax free cash, known as a ‘pension commencement lump sum’.
  2. Check whether your pension has any specific benefits such as a Guaranteed Minimum Pension (GMP) or Guaranteed Annuity Rate (GAR) as this can affect whether or not you can transfer your pension fund and whether you would lose any benefits in doing so.
  3. List your medical conditions and when they were first diagnosed. It’s handy to have your most recent readings and details of any medication you are taking to hand as this will be needed for the quotation.
  4. When entering your medical information, ensure you are being as honest as possible otherwise you could be missing out on valuable income by not declaring existing conditions.
  5. If you are comparing with different companies check that the quote basis is the same, i.e. Level income or Increasing, with or without a guarantee period, joint or single basis.
  6. Make sure you include all the open market option annuity providers which include companies such as Legal and General, MGM Advantage, Reliance Mutual, Partnership, LV=, Canada Life, Prudential, Standard Life, Aviva, Just Retirement, Scottish Widows, Friends Life and Hodge Lifetime.
