Annuity products can be categorized into two types: Deferred or Immediate. Generally speaking, a deferred annuity is one that is not currently paying income to the owner. It may help to think of it as being in deferred payment status. By contrast, an immediate annuity contract is one that is currently distributing income to the owner.
