Depending on the details of your situation a carefully selected immediate annuity might be able to provide you with more income than you could safely get by trying to invest the money yourself. Buying an immediate annuity is basically buying a pension.

There are lots of pros and cons to these and you should ask more questions if you are considering an annuity.
