If I have $100,000 pension– I divided this cash in between 2 annuities– an instant annuity that pays $353 month-to-month for 5 years or 60 payments. This instant annuity will need $20,500 to pay 60 payments of $353 each. The balance of the cash– remember we began with $100,000 and I am utilizing $20,500 for the instant annuity. Balance of the funds $79,500 I take into a delayed annuity paying 5% – at the end of the instant annuity’s 60th payment when instant annuity worth is $0– the worth of the postponed annuity making 5% every year is more than $106,000– I have actually changed the quantity put in the instant annuity– remember I began with $100,000– and took earnings of $353 month-to-month for 5 years– so when the 60th payment of that instant annuity is made I understand have $106,000 in my postponed annuity.
