Annuity quote expiry terms


Annuity quotes are guaranteed for a limited time. This is shown on your quote and summarised below.

The annuity provider must receive the funds from your pension provider(s), and in some cases all outstanding paperwork, within this expiry term to secure the rate quoted. If the funds are received after the quote expires and rates have changed you will receive the new rate offered by the provider.
