    Bear in mind that the way RPI is calculated will change in 2030. Following the change in 2030, the RPI inflation rate will be measured the same way as the CPI-H inflation rate (which is typically lower). Annuity pricing will already allow for this.

    As has been mentioned on other threads, there is nothing to stop you getting a level annuity and investing the difference between that and an inflation linked annuity. The proceeds can be used to buy another annuity in the future.
