Annuities Due

What are Annuities Due?

There are two types of annuities, annuities due and ordinary annuities.

An annuity due is a series of payments made at the beginning of each period for a fixed number of periods, normally years. Ordinary annuities are similar to the annuities due except that the payments are made at the end of each period.
