Immediate Annuities

Income that starts now and lasts as long as you need it

As retirement nears, financial challenges like rising healthcare costs, inflation and market volatility need to be managed.

Our Flex Guard Single Premium Immediate Annuities (SPIA) convert a portion of your retirement savings into steady, reliable income for a specified period or your lifetime. We offer a range of flexible payout options.
  • Lifetime: Provides income for the member’s lifetime. This option provides the highest payment amount.

  • Lifetime with Refund: If the member dies before receiving all principal, the balance is paid to the designated beneficiary. This refund can be paid in a lump sum or installments.

  • Joint & Survivor: Provides income based on the life expectancy of two individuals and ends at the death of the second individual. This can be done for a Period Certain or lifetime basis.
  • Customizable Period Certain: Provides income for a term of 5 to 25 years. If the member dies before the term ends, the joint owner, if any, otherwise the designated beneficiary receives the remaining payments or a lump sum.
  • Customizable Period Certain & Life: Provides income for life with the joint owner, if any, otherwise the designated beneficiary receiving the remaining payments or a lump sum if the member dies before the selected term ends.

Insurance that makes a difference

At GBU Life, we specialize in life insurance and annuity products to help protect families and anchor retirements.

We do things differently at GBU as we don’t have shareholders. We don’t have clients. Instead, we have members—members who come to GBU Life to add security to their futures, build their legacies and impact the communities around them.

From the start, GBU Life has been member-owned and member-driven. As a not-for-profit company, we emphasize value—and values. Our members can realize their financial protection goals and give back to people and causes that matter most to them.
