Hi,

DSolve[{y'[t] == fundRate/100*y[t] - annuityAmt,
   y[age] == startValue}, y[t], t]

--> {{y[t] -> (1/fundRate)
    E^(-((age fundRate)/
      100)) (100 annuityAmt E^((age fundRate)/100) -
       100 annuityAmt E^((fundRate t)/100) +
       E^((fundRate t)/100) fundRate startValue)}}

doesn't help?

In simple cases, try the exact solution. Even if the calculation needs a 
while (not for this differential equation), it's worth it.

Peter
