Why not acquire a fixed/hybrid annuity from an A+ rated insurance company, and get $500 or so a month until I'm not around to sign the checks? At 59, I would hopefully live to >79 ...

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.
