Voya Single Premium Immediate Annuity Review
In today’s financial world, some products provide payout options. Others provide protection.
But how many can provide both?
Voya Single Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA) does just that. A single premium immediate annuity (SPIA) is an annuity that allows for a lump sum of money to be exchanged for a stream of regular guaranteed payments. The guaranteed payments can last for life, for a certain period, or some combination of both.
Offering competitive payment plan options and attractive tax benefits, as two of its many benefits, Voya SPIA provides you with the payouts and protection you deserve.
Why choose Voya SPIA?
There are several advantages to choosing Voya Single Premium Immediate Annuity:
1. You have the ability to convert rollovers and qualified plan payouts into a guaranteed payment plan for retirement, possibly allowing you to continue to take advantage of the tax-deferred status of your retirement assets.
2. If you do not have a pension plan through your employer, create your own payment plan through Voya SPIA by using the money you have saved for your retirement.
3. Since Voya SPIA can provide a guaranteed payment plan for life, you cannot outlive your retirement money.
Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of Voya Insurance and Annuity Company.
Voya SPIA offers a wide variety of payout options as well as a choice of monthly, quarterly, semiannual, or annual payment schedules.

Only the interest portion of an annuity payment from a non-qualified annuity is taxable. Current tax law defines part of each annuity payment as return of your principal. The company uses regulations and annuity tables published by the Internal Revenue Service to calculate the amount of each annuity payment that can be excluded from income. The difference between the total annuity payment and the excludable amount is subject to federal income tax and, if applicable, state income tax. This partial exclusion from income tax continues until your principal is recovered, at which point the annuity payments are fully taxable.
Retirement Plan Distributions
Generally, payments from a qualified annuity are fully taxable since they usually represent funds that have yet to be taxed. These payments will also be subject to an additional 10% Federal penalty tax if received before age 59½, unless an exception applies. However, since your payments are made over time, you spread out your tax liability over time as well. Compare this to a lump sum distribution from a qualified pension plan, which is taxed entirely in the year it is distributed.
Also, by deferring your payments over time, you may find yourself in a lower tax bracket at the time of these payouts. This would mean your payments may be subject to a lower income tax rate as well.
Other Annuity Features
You can purchase this annuity if you are between the ages of 35 and 100 and it is available in your state.
This annuity is a single premium immediate annuity. Your one premium is limited to a minimum premium of $15,000 and a maximum premium of $2,000,000 without prior home office approval.
Death Benefit Protection
For annuities with a Period Certain payout option selected, the remaining period certain payments will be paid to your beneficiary. For annuities with a Life Only payout option selected, no further income payments will be made following your death. For annuities with a Joint Life Only option, no further income payments will be made following the death of the last surviving annuitant.
