That would be 8%, 5.9% and 5.4%, respectively, so the only way to get 6-7% is without inflation adjustment or premium refund, as I originally suspected.

LOL, so because I said 6% instead of 5.9%, this is the reason we chose to quibble?

Good grief man, does it really matter if it is 5.9% or 6%? Additionally, this is just one quote from one company at one specific age. If I really need to win this arguement, I guess I can go out and find another annuity company that will do 6+% - but I would hope my point is made regardless of the fact that it is 5.9% and not 6-7%. The point was that there were options to get guarantees that accounted for inflation.

Who really thinks some people just have to get a kick out of trying to prove other people wrong.
