Impaired Life annuity rates are paid by some annuity providers to people who are in seriously poor health.
If you are aged 55 and over, suffer from certain health problems, and have funds in either a personal pension plan, an old style retirement annuity plan, or a stakeholder pension plan, an impaired life annuity with its higher annuity rate (and therefore a higher retirement income) could be waiting for you.
You could qualify for a higher pension annuity income from your personal pension funds if you suffer from any of the main life threatening diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, multiple sclerosis, or lung and chest disease or other health impairments too.
So, if you suffer from any of the conditions mentioned above or from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, minor heart problems, or any other unmentioned health impairment which has the potential to significantly shorten your lifespan, or are a heavy smoker or have an addiction to alcohol, don't buy an annuity until you've carried out an annuity search to get the best impaired life annuity quote available.
You could be surprised about how much more annuity income you are entitled too!
