Which website were you using?

I tried to run Kat's numbers: female, age 88 (guessing a birthday of 07/01/21), living in TX (according to her profile) at Fidelity's website to get a price estimate for a single-life fixed-annuity, but I got this error message:

These annuities are not available to individuals over 85 years of age. Please call an Annuity Specialist at 800-493-3004 to discuss other annuity options.
