Insuranceopedia Explains Annuitization Options

The two general options are scheduled withdrawal and lump sum. The first options allows the annuitant to collect monthly payouts, which are divided up according to the annuitant's life expectancy. The second option provides the annuitant with a single payment for the total amount they are entitled to collect. This latter option is usually chosen if they need the funds for an emergency or want to invest it elsewhere.
