Annuity rate

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

The present value of a series of payments of unit value per period that are payable for a specified period of time. The inverse is the annuity factor, which converts the lump sum into a payment per period. Common usage often mentions annuity rate when, in fact, referring to the annuity factor. See also annuity.
