Split Annuity Income Solution

A "split annuity" is an arrangement in which one payment buys two or perhaps three different annuity contracts: a single premium immediate income (SPII) contract and/or a single premium immediate annuity (SPIA) contract, to provide level income payments for a fixed period – usually 5 or 6 years – and a single premium deferred annuity (SPDA), to accumulate cash value at fixed interest. Under most split annuity arrangements, by the time the income payments stop, the value of the SPDA equals the total premium originally paid for all the contracts.

This assumes no cash withdrawals from the SPDA and if using a SPIA (temporary life contract), the Annuitant survives the payment period.

Presidential Life’s 5 Year Split Annuity

Presidential's 5-year split annuity involves separate annuity contracts.

  • 1. A single premium [period certain] Immediate Income (SPII) contract that maximizes your after-tax income at a guaranteed level, payable monthly for five full years (60 payments), and/or
  • 2. A single premium [temporary life] immediate annuity (SPIA) contract that also maximizes your after-tax income at a guarantee level, payable monthly for five full years (60 payments) and ends upon the Annuitant’s death or after five years which ever occurs first, and
  • 3. A Single Premium [Secure 5] Deferred Annuity (SPDA) that grows by the end of your five-year income payment period to an amount equal to your original premium cost for all the contracts.

Below is an example of what a $100,000 purchase of a Presidential's 5-year split annuity will produce. Actual rates on annuities you purchase may vary if you live in a state in which a state premium tax applies.
