Investopedia explains 'Qualified Annuity'


A qualified annuity differs from a non-qualified annuity, which is an annuity funded with after-tax dollars. While distributions from a qualified annuity are taxed as income, distributions from a non-qualified annuity are not subject to income tax in their entirety. Qualified annuities are often set up by employers on behalf of their employees as part of a retirement plan.
