The RBC annuity payout annuity calculator is one of the tools you can use to determine your annuity income. With most online tools there are some problems and shortcomings. Below is a list of the top problems we found with the RBC Payout Annuity Calculator.

The 9 problems and shortcomings of the RBC payout annuity calculator are:

  1. No purchase date field

  2. No Income start date field

  3. Rates can change daily - Their is no guarantee that you will receive that annuity rate.

  4. RBC Advisors who promote their products only

  5. No indexing, Impaired, Deferred or Reducing options.

  6. For informational Purposes only - should not be relied on for advice.

  7. Does not take provincial legislation into consideration when calculating the annuity payment.
