Life annuitys are periodic payments until the end of life of the recipient. They are bound on the life expectancy of the pensioner. They are purchased by one-time payments (eg sale of a house on annuity) or ongoing contributions (deferred annuity). Basis for the calculation of life annuities are life tables. (Vital statistics of the population of a Country).
A typical example of the life annuity is the sale of a house. The purchase agreement is, that the buy price is payed only partially (or not at all). Instead of paying immediately, the buyer has to pay a certain ammount as a peridoic annuity until the death of the seller.
The contrakt for a life annuity for connected lives is closed for the life of two persons p.a. a married couple, business partner, etc. The contract can agree, that the life annuity is to be payed until the demision of the two persons. In this case, a certain annuity is to be payed until the demision of one person. After this, the annuity (or a part of it) is to be payed until the demision of the other person. One speaks from a life annuity for the longer life.
One speaks of the life annuity for the shorter life if the contract prevents a payment of the life annuity only until the demision of one person.
