Immediate annuitization as a strategy for a welfare maximization for a pay-out phase in private pension schemes has been widely criticized. We examine the self-annuitization strategies under two different consumption rates using programmed withdrawal compared to the immediate annuitization for a retired individual subject to uncertain portfolio returns and longevity risk. The aim is to examine the utility of both approaches under the existence of longevity risk on one side and bequest on the other. The results could serve as a basis for further discussion on improving the legislature on pay-out phase in Slovak private DC pension pillar.
