How can I get the annual returns of the S&P 500 stock index without dividend reinvestment?
100% of people found this answer helpful

If you are using a S&P 500 index fund in the form of a mutual fund, ETF or index fund or even stocks, a standard choice/option you can select (turn on or off) at any time is dividend reinvest. Your choices are usually but not limited to; pay as cash to an account or pay interest/ dividends to you when issued or reinvest. If you have a direct to fund account, such as Vanguard, Fidelity etc., you can call their 800 number or log on to your account and change the option at any time. If you use a broker, contact them, explain what you are trying to achieve and have them change the reinvest to pay you. As an additional choice/ benefit, you can have the dividends paid directly to you in many forms including direct deposit to a saving or checking account, to your brokerage account or other account.
