Decoding True Income Rider Payouts: A Christmas StoryAnnuity Department
A competing carrier wholesaler, who we’ll call “Little Orphan Annie”, tells you that their product is paying 5.10% at age 65. One of her strongest competitors is only paying 4.30% for a 65-year-old. With $100,000 of premium, her product’s income is $5,100/yr.
Your first thought may be to go with a payout rate of 5.10% if you trust Little Orphan Annie. However, when you pull out the decoder in the bathroom, the competitor she is referring to has an income rider base bonus of 20% so the income is actually $5,160 or 5.16%, not the $4,300 you would think listening to Little Orphan Annie.
