INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Annuity In Arrears'

Annuities in arrears are not marketed as such by most annuity carriers, but they do exist nonetheless. They get their name from the fact that the first full annuity payment is not due until the end of the first term. For example, an annuity that pays out a combination of interest and principal one month from the start of the payment period is an annuity in arrears.
