Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
He benefits only in that his money is invested and he gets a monthly payment.His named beneficiary would get the balance of the payments.Perhaps he bought it for peace of mind leaving the balance to the named beneficiary.
I understand your frustration here.But is presumed to have capacity here, you may need to get a POA or guardianship to manage his affairs if he lacks the capacity here to do so.This may be a wake up call for you.I am sorry this happened, please don't shoot the messenger but he is allowed to make such a purchase until a court finds he lacks capacity.It is unlikely they will let him out of the contract here.
Make sure he has a named beneficiary for the balance of the annuity here.He gets payments for his lifetime and the balance goes to the beneficiary.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Let me know if you have more followup.Thanks again.
