I'm 70 1/2 now and need to start withdrawals.
The TSP website has a calculator that shows a level payment amount for a lifetime, no survivor annuity that appears to be based on the principle amount and my age. It uses a 2.75% interest rate. Without any growth, my total payments equal my invested principle in 12 years. After that, it seems like free money. Too simplistic? (Chuckle)
I see no mentions of fees associated with this annuity.
Can anyone who has actually bought one of these annuities tell me whether they like them or if they've had any surprises or problems?
Also, has anyone done more research than I have the energy for and concluded they're not worth it?
Thanks for your help.
