Enhanced and impaired annuities work in the same way as conventional pension annuities, but are designed to offer a better rate (more income) for people who suffer from certain medical conditions or have a poor health history. It is important to get annuity advice prior to making any financial decisions.
The increase in income can be up to 20% higher than you would get from a conventional annuity, so it is certainly worth investigating to see if you qualify for enhanced rates. You don’t necessarily need to be at death’s door to qualify for this type of annuity: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and even smoking can qualify for enhanced rates.
