“Just curious can you please explain what Annuitization means?”---->Basically, annuitization means that you convert part or all of the money in a qualified retirement plan (A plan that meets requirements of the Internal Revenue Code and as a result, is eligible to receive certain tax benefits). ,i.e.401K, or nonqualified annuity contract(Privately obtained annuities that cannot be funded with pre-tax dollars are called non-qualifying annuities) into a stream of regular income payments, either for your lifetime or the lifetimes of you and your joint annuitant. Once you choose to annuitize, the payment schedule and the amount is generally fixed and can't be altered.If you have a qualified retirement plan, such as a 401(k),as said above, then you generally have three major options when you retire. You can annuitize, roll over the account balance to an IRA, or take the money all at once as a lump sum distribution.If you have a nonqualified deferred annuity, you have a choice of annuitizing, taking a lump sum, setting up a systematic withdrawal plan, or arranging some other payout method that the contract allows.
