This chart doesn't differentiate by gender. I believe most (all?) annuities will do so. It would assume a man has less than 18.4 years and a woman has more than 18.4 years, and adjust the payout accordingly so a female at any given age would receive less than a male.

If it's a 100% joint and survivor annuity that would become a moot point, though.
