Higher income for those with poor health
Standard annuity rates are calculated with reference to the average life expectancy for people living in the UK. This is fine for those in good health, but not so good for those who have below average life expectancy.
An enhanced or impaired life annuity pays a higher income because an allowance is made for any medical conditions which might reduce life expectancy
You will probably qualify for an enhanced annuity if you can answer yes to one of the following questions:
- Do you smoke?
- Are you taking prescription medication?
- Have you been to hospital recently for a medical condition?
If you want to make the most of pension freedoms you should start planning ahead and make sure your financial affairs are in good shape in the years running up to retirement.William Burrows
