I priced out annuities for someone in their 40's and the most you can hope to get is around 3.3% a year

maybe I misunderstand you as I'm not familiar with annuities but do you mean by 3.3% only $3,300 per year for life if you hand them $100,000?
Immediateannuities.com for 45yo male and no payments to benefitiaries just quoted me $478/month which is $5,736/year (I'm not 45 but wanted to compare apples and apples...which I'm probably not doing..could you clarify what you meant?)
