I may buy more if interest rates rise to assist my wife's money management if I become infirm or I pass on. Another $1600 monthly plus that $800 and SS would cover our (her) expenses. Right now that $1600 easily comes from our IRAs, but she does not want to learn how to manage it, so additional SPIAs would ease her mind.
