5 years. Because Gina doesn™t really need the money today, she plans to let it
accumulate in an account that earns 7% annual interest. Given her desire to buy
a house at the end of 5 years after closing on the sale of the lot, she decides to
choose the payment alternative”$24,000 single amount or the mixed stream of
payments in the following table”that provides the higher future value at the end
of 5 years.

LG6
immediate-retirement annuities available to her. In each case, in exchange for
paying a single premium today, she will receive equal annual end-of-year cash
benefits for a specified number of years. She considers the annuities to be equally

conference with the defendants. The defendants have made an initial offer of
$156,000 per year for 25 years. Anna plans to counteroffer at $255,000

CHAPTER 4 CASE Finding Jill Moran™s Retirement Annuity

S unrise Industries wishes to accumulate funds to provide a retirement annuity
for its vice president of research, Jill Moran. Ms. Moran by contract will
retire at the end of exactly 12 years. Upon retirement, she is entitled to receive an
annual end-of-year payment of $42,000 for exactly 20 years. If she dies prior to
the end of the 20-year period, the annual payments will pass to her heirs. During
the 12-year “accumulation period” Sunrise wishes to fund the annuity by mak-
ing equal annual end-of-year deposits into an account earning 9% interest. Once
the 20-year “distribution period” begins, Sunrise plans to move the accumulated
monies into an account earning a guaranteed 12% per year. At the end of the
distribution period, the account balance will equal zero. Note that the first
deposit will be made at the end of year 1 and that the first distribution payment
will be received at the end of year 13.

Required
a. Draw a time line depicting all of the cash flows associated with Sunrise™s view
of the retirement annuity.
b. How large a sum must Sunrise accumulate by the end of year 12 to provide
the 20-year, $42,000 annuity?
c. How large must Sunrise™s equal annual end-of-year deposits into the account
be over the 12-year accumulation period to fund fully Ms. Moran™s retire-
ment annuity?
d. How much would Sunrise have to deposit annually during the accumulation
period if it could earn 10% rather than 9% during the accumulation period?
e. How much would Sunrise have to deposit annually during the accumulation
period if Ms. Moran™s retirement annuity were a perpetuity and all other
terms were the same as initially described?
