How Much Interest Does a $100,000 Annuity Pay?

If you want to generate a monthly income but do not want to spend down your principal one option would be to buy a fixed annuity (CD Type Annuity) and take monthly interest payments. 

A $100,000 annuity with a fixed annuity rate of 3.15% would pay you $262.50 per month in interest.


$100,000 x .0315 = $3,150 of interest annually

Frequently Asked Questions

Our research found that a $750,000 annuity will pay between $3,125 and $9,083 per month for a single lifetime. Income amounts vary based on age at the time of purchase, and how long you wait to begin taking your income payments.

Single-Premium Immediate Annuities do not charge a fee. However, there is a fee to add a guaranteed income rider to a deferred annuity. The fee comes out of your account value and does not reduce your annuity payments.

Generally speaking, the best time to buy an annuity intended to generate lifetime income is 10 years prior to taking lifetime income payments. So if your desired retirement age is 65, you should purchase your income annuity at age 55 or shortly thereafter to maximize the benefits provided by lifetime income riders.

A $200,000 annuity would pay you approximately $958 each month for the rest of your life if you purchased the annuity at age 65 and began taking payments immediately.
