I would consider a single premium immediate annuity with a period certain of 10 years.

I just ran a search on one with an inflation rider on it (payments increase 4% every year to give you increased income) and the rate came back at 2.21%. Your current age will have an impact on your rate and payments.

Why would the annuitant's age matter with a period certain annuity? If you die after year 5, wouldn't your estate get the remaining payments?
