Retirement Planner!

Do you know what it will take to create a secure retirement? Use this calculator to help you create your retirement plan. View your retirement savings balance and your withdrawals for each year until the end of your retirement. Social security is calculated on a sliding scale based on your income. Including a non-working spouse in your plan increases your social security benefits up to, but not over, the maximum.

Current age Your current age.
Age of retirement Age you wish to retire. This calculator assumes that the year you retire you do not make any contributions to your retirement savings. So if you retire at age 65, your last contribution happened when you were actually 64. This calculator also assumes that you make your entire contribution at the end of each year.
Household income Your total household income. If you are married this should include your spouse's income.
Current retirement savings Total amount that you currently have saved toward your retirement. Include all sources of retirement savings such as 401(k)s, IRAs and Annuities.
Pre-retirement rate of return The annual percent you expect to earn on your investments before you retire.
Post-retirement rate of return The annual percent you expect to earn on your investments after you retire.
Percent of income to save The percentage of your annual income you will save for your retirement goals.
Expected salary increase Annual percent increase you expect in your household income.
Years until retirement Number of years before retirement.
Years of retirement income Total number of years you expect to use your retirement income.
Percent income desired The percent of your working year's household income you think you will need to have in retirement. This amount is based on your last year's salary. The default is 100% minus your retirement savings percent. For example, if you save 20% of your salary towards your retirement the calculator will default your percent income desired to 80%. You can change this amount to be as low as 50% and as higher as 150%.
Are you married? Check this box if you are married. Married couples have a higher maximum social security benefit than single wage earners.
