About the Joint Annuity Table
The joint life annuity table will give you a good idea of possible annuity income with various guarantee periods. You can see that the monthly incomes jump by $50 a month and more over 5 year periods, making the annuity table a place to find good retirement ideas.
Let's take from the annuity table, a real life comparison of a annuity income, no guarantee, for 2 couples aged 65. The first couple takes the annuity payment immediately and receives $455.87 per month as shown. The other couple earns $20,000 on their capital and at age 70 and receives $617. Who is better off?
The first couple has received $27,300 in total. The second couple has to make up this $27,300 they did not receive with the extra $162 per month. Simple math shows that it will take 14 years to make up the difference when they will be 84?
This is the reason people use annuity tables!
