BREAKING DOWN 'Delayed Annuity'
If Steve was to receive five yearly payments of $100 at the end of each year starting this year, then this payout would be considered an ordinary annuity. On the other hand, if the five payments are deferred for 10 years, this instrument is classified as a delayed annuity. In order to determine the net present value of the delayed annuity, the payments must be discounted to year zero (the present).
