Policy that has many similar characteristics to that of the survivor-ship annuity in that the annuitant receives a predetermined monthly income benefit for life upon the death of the insured. The annuitant's life expectancy as well as the insured's life expectancy must be taken into consideration when determining the premium; thus, the annuitant cannot be changed after having been selected. The essential difference between this policy and the survivor-ship annuity is that under this policy a minimum number of payments are guaranteed to be paid after the insured's death, regardless of whether or not the annuitant is alive to receive them. If the annuitant does not survive the guarantee period (period certain), a contingent annuitant will receive the remaining guaranteed monthly income payments.
