Is the $500 inflation adjusted? Because if it isn't, it's quite possible (probable) that in 20 years from now, that $500 will be worth A LOT less purchasing power.

Very unlikely it would have such built into the rider; but then neither does a CD or a preferred stock.

Some immediate annuities will have an inflation rider but of course you pay for that benefit by accepting a lower starting income.
