Financial regulator the FCA is to conduct a major probe into Britain's annuity market, amid claims the "disorderly" state of the sector is ripping pensions off.

- An array of different annuity types exist, including standard ones that most people tend to get and enhanced annuities, where people in ill health, can get higher payments.
