DEFINITION of 'Split-Funded Annuity'

A type of annuity that uses a portion of the principal to fund immediate monthly payments and then saves the remaining portion to fund a deferred annuity. The two funding methods let the annuity holder receive dependable income and simultaneously save for future needs.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Split-Funded Annuity'
