An annnuity is an investment that returns a fixed sum of money paid to someone on a regularly scheduled basis. Annuities usually pay monthly and are typically paid for the rest of the owner's life. The periodic payment received will not change but the total amount received will vary, even for the same annuity investment because the time to death will vary between owners.
The Annuity Schedule Calculator will calculate how long your money will last assuming a periodic withdrawal. This is a very important calculator for anyone wishing to do financial planning and what-if analysis. It is also a great tool for auditing accounts such as money market accounts.

This calculator will produce a detailed cash flow using regular or irregular length periods. Additionally, you may randomly change the money withdrawn (or deposited) over the term of the pay out or you may systematically increase (or decrease) the amount using an inflation factor.
