There are two ways
to receive your annuity payments.
One way is through an ordinary annuity. This means that you will receive your payment at the end of each period. The period can be monthly, quarterly, annually, etc.
Why is it called ordinary?
To be simple about it: When you put some money into your bank in return for interest, when does the interest record? At the end of the period, right?
And that is ordinary, right?
If your annuities agreement specifies that you will be paid every quarter, then your payments will come at the end of each quarter.
(The opposite is the annuity due: That payment is due at the beginning of each period.)
