Common Questions

Unlike a traditional annuity, ANNUITYLife gives you options and the flexibility to design your own retirement and create your own pension on your terms, without any upfront fees or hidden charges. If you delay annuitizing, you have whole life insurance coverage with a long-term care settlement option, at no additional cost, and you can get back all of your initial investment with no surrender charges from AAFMAA. It’s a safe, trusted solution available only to members of the military community that allows you to set up a secure income stream in retirement that ensures your money lives as long as you do.

AAFMAA does not require a medical exam to qualify for an ANNUITYLife policy. All you have to do is answer three simple medical questions confirming that you are not presently in a hospital, confined to a bed, or have a known terminal illness expected to result in death within two years of issue.

Unlike other annuity products, ANNUITYLife has no upfront fees or commissions to pay. You simply make your initial investment — because ANNUITYLife is a life insurance policy first with an immediate annuity option, this is in the form of a net single premium of $785 per $1,000 of policy benefit ($10,000-$1,000,000 coverage) to start your policy along with an administrative cost of 0.75% that is subtracted from our current crediting rate of 5.0%. When you annuitize, we base your stream of income on that initial premium plus any cash value growth in the policy at that time.


Subject to terms and conditions of the policy, including exclusions and limitations. There is no insurance coverage unless you apply and are accepted by AAFMAA, a policy is issued and you pay the required premium. No war, aviation, terrorist clause. All policies include Survivor Assistance Services.

*AAFMAA's crediting rate for ANNUITYLife is currently 5.0% for 2020, minus an administrative cost, currently 0.75% for a net current return of 4.25%. This rate is NOT guaranteed and is subject to change. The guaranteed crediting rate is 3.0%, minus the administrative fee for a net guaranteed return of 2.25%. ANNUITYLife is a life insurance policy. It is not long-term care insurance.
