Purchase annuity rates
Instructions Contact several insurance companies and request their annuity rate sheet. An annuity rate sheet details the annuities that the company offers and the interest rates that they pay on their annuities. Look for banded rates on the annuity rate sheets.

The insurance company, like a bank, will pay higher rates according to higher deposits as well as timed deposits.
401k early withdrawal
