Enter the lump-sum premium ($), the monthly benefit ($), and the life-expectancy period (months) into the Annuity Exclusion Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Annuity Exclusion Ratio.

## Annuity Exclusion Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Annuity Exclusion Ratio.

**AER = LS / (MB * LE) * 100**

- Where AER is the Annuity Exclusion Ratio (%)
- LS is the lump-sum premium ($)
- MB is the monthly benefit ($)
- LE is the life-expectancy period (months)

## How to Calculate Annuity Exclusion Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Annuity Exclusion Ratio.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the lump-sum premium ($).
- The lump-sum premium ($) is calculated to be : 100,000.

- Next, determine the monthly benefit ($).
- The monthly benefit ($) is measured to be: 560.

- Next, determine the life-expectancy period (months).
- The life-expectancy period (months) is found to be: 200.

- Finally, calculate the Annuity Exclusion Ratio using the formula above:

AER = LS / (MB * LE) * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

AER = 100000 / (560 * 200) * 100 = 89.285 (%)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

lump-sum premium ($) = 200,000

monthly benefit ($) = 700

life-expectancy period (months) = 200

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

AER = LS / (MB * LE) * 100 =** **(%)
