joint-life payout

Definition

One of two possible retirement benefit payout options. In this case the retiree chooses to receive their benefits payments, while also guaranteeing payments will continue for another person (usually a spouse) after their death. This option must usually be explicitly stated, as the single-life payout option is typically the default.
