Best annuity rates 2015 updated: $QUOTEDATE$

When the time comes to consider your retirement options it’s important to be aware of varying rates and products provided by different companies.

Using your right to shop around, known as the ‘open market option’ you can search for the best annuity rates available and ensure you are not missing out on valuable income in retirement.

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.
