Group Deferred Annuity

Definition of "Group deferred annuity"

Contract for retirements benefits in which an entire group of employees is underwritten, as opposed to a single annuity for each employee. Each premium pays for an increment of a paid-up annuity; thus a group deferred annuity is a series of single premium paid-up annuities. It may be considered an allocated funding instrument for purchasing retirement benefits. Single premium paid-up annuities that have already been purchased guarantee that an employee will receive retirement income whether or not the employer remains in business at the time he or she retires.
