How Much Interest Does A $500,000 Annuity Pay ?

Not looking to buy a lifetime income annuity? You can also generate a monthly income using fixed annuities.

Are Annuities a Good Investment?

Annuities are a good investment for retirement in today’s low-interest-rate environment, but an annuity is not right for everyone. As a general practice at My Annuity Store, our first step in retirement income planning is to complete a basic retirement income planning worksheet with our clients.

If we determine there is an income gap between guaranteed income from other sources (Social Security/ Pension) and necessary retirement expenses we often purchase an income annuity with monthly payments sufficient to fill the cap.

We very rarely recommend allocating more than 50% of your liquid net worth to an annuity as annuities come with a surrender charge for excess withdrawals during the surrender charge period. 

Income Riders vs Immediate Annuities

Annuities are the only financial vehicle that can guarantee an income stream you can not outlive.  However, we’ve found that most of our clients think of annuitization when they think of lifetime income payments.

All of the income payments referenced in this guide are generated using a fixed index annuity with an income rider. Indexed annuities provide more flexibility than annuitization because you don’t give up control of your asset.

You have access to your account value even while you are taking lifetime income payments. Excess withdrawals above your lifetime income amount will reduce your income payments moving forward.

If there are still funds in your account at your death they are paid directly to your beneficiary as a lump sum death benefit.
