Agreement under which an annuitant receives a predetermined monthly income benefit for life upon the death of the insured. Should the annuitant predecease the insured, the contract is terminated and no benefits are ever paid. The life expectancy of both the insured and annuitant must be taken into consideration in determining the premium, and such, the annuitant cannot be changed once selected. This is also called a revisionary annuity (a life insurance policy combined with an annuity agreement).
