  • The Contract that was purchased is a Group Annuity Contract issued by The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential). A group annuity contract is a financial product sold by an insurance company that provides guaranteed payments for members of a group at stated intervals—for example, monthly. Payments are typically made for each recipient’s lifetime and, if applicable, for the lifetime of a survivor or beneficiary (such as a spouse) thereafter, or for a specified period.

  • Depending on the type of pension, annuity, or your relationship to the original payee, a different term may apply to your specific case.

    • An Annuitant is the primary payee who has a guaranteed benefit under the Contract.
    • A Contingent Annuitant is a person designated by the Annuitant under a Joint and Survivor form of annuity to receive annuity payments in the event of the Annuitant’s death.
    • A Beneficiary is a person or entity named to receive payments after the death of the original payee, other than a Contingent Annuitant under a Joint and Survivor Annuity.
    • An Alternate Payee receives a portion of the primary Annuitant’s guaranteed benefit, as directed by a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO).
