Updated on March 19, 2010

Annuity leads are now a growing business online. Many people are now making a few extra bucks of commission through them. Let us first understand what is an annuity lead and how does a person make money in the process?

An annuity in simple terms is the payment that you get as installments in fixed intervals mostly after retirement from an insurance company. You get this in lieu of the insurance money that you have paid while you were earning, that is before retirement. In case, the insurance holder dies, this money is given to the deceased person’s beneficiary or the family. Annuities are sold by the leading banks and insurance companies. They appoint agents who get a fixed rate of commission per policy that they register. Annuities leads are the tips about the prospective clients that they get from the professionals or the acquaintances.
