In Blog #63, I examined in detail three of the InsCalc Calculators from the InsMark Illustration System, one of which involved a Single Premium Immediate Annuity (“SPIA”). As you will see below, our Wealthy and Wise® System also does an excellent job reflecting the impact of a SPIA as an alternative investment and its effect on overall net worth and wealth to heirs.
Aaron and Connie Bigelow, ages 75 and 70, have been holding much of their investment portfolio in cash waiting for interest yields to increase. “Time’s up,” says Connie, “let’s look for another alternative.” They may want to consider a single premium immediate annuity.
The Bigelows’ current net worth consists of the following:
|Tax Exempt Account||500,000||3.00%|
|Personal Property||150,000||– 3.00%|
Aaron and Connie’s after tax cash flow requirements are $100,000 a year — with a 3.00% annual increase for inflation, and all calculations that follow include that level of cash flow.
In order to increase cash flow and ensure more stability of income, Aaron and Connie are considering the purchase of a $600,000 single premium immediate annuity (“SPIA”) using funds from their taxable account.
Payments from the SPIA are guaranteed by the issuing life insurance company for as long as either of them remains alive (with at least 10 years of payments guaranteed).
I use the following website for quotes for the SPIA: www.immediateannuities.com, and it determined that the monthly income for the Bigelows would be $3,333 from a competitive carrier (annualized as $39,996 in the illustration). In their 28% tax bracket, their after tax annualized income from the SPIA is as follows:
Years 1 – 19: $37,611
Year 20: $29,339
Year 21 and thereafter: $28,797
Note: Calculations for after tax income from the SPIA are available on the data arrays accessible from the drop-down menus on the Expected Cash Flow tab in Wealthy and Wise®.
Below is a graphic of the impact of the SPIA on the Bigelows’ net worth:
Although the Bigelows liquid assets are initially reduced by acquiring the SPIA, they believe the reduction is tolerable due to the presence of the guaranteed stream of cash flow. Also on the plus side, their long-range Net Worth is improved by almost $300,000 due to the efficiency of the SPIA.
Below is a look at the results after 25 years for heirs:
*Due to the results of “stretch-out” tax planning, the checkered section on the Heirs’ slices represents retirement assets in the following amounts on which income tax is still due by the heirs: Strategy 1: $172,554; Strategy 2: $172,554.

For those seeking to lock down a portion of their retirement cash flow, a SPIA can provide an effective way to do so. The SPIA may be particularly valuable during troubled economic times.
