What if you invested in high yield dividend stocks, like ATT, MO, DUK, KMP, etc.

Then you would have a hope of pacing inflation, whereas a non indexed annuity would not.

Since you are willing to post numbers, would you mind sharing your expected social security payout in twenty five years. I think this would be a good number to know, I would expect that you might be able to draw a higher yield if you agree to have depleted some percentage of the assets to be replaced by social security.

I think annuities are not all bad, if you go for a more recommended provider.

They provide a real way to distribute risk, especially the risk of living extraordinarily long.

I wonder if your job could be made more palatable without quitting altogether, such as half time work, or perhaps taking a month of unpaid every year.

I took two months off from an employer, and it seemed to have no adverse affect on my career while I backpacker Europe.
