Living Annuities

A living annuity is an investment plan designed to give you a regular income during your retirement, tailored to meet your individual retirement income needs. The different sources of money you can use to invest in a living annuity are pension funds, provident funds, preservation funds, retirement annuities or transfers from other living annuities.


Features of our Living Annuity

You can withdraw an income of between 2.5% to 17.5% of your total investment value a year.

Your selected withdrawal income rate may only be changed once a year on your policy anniversary.

You need to manage your investment so that it lasts throughout your retirement.

You can leave your remaining investment value to your beneficiaries when you die.

All investment growth on the investment funds you choose is tax-free, but your income will be taxed at your marginal tax rate.
