Retirement Savings Calculator Information


This retirement savings calculator can help calculate a savings plan for your retirement.

Given how long until you retire, your desired retirement income and an expected inflation rate, the calculator will calculate an estimate of how much savings you will need at retirement, and how well you current savings plan will be able to meet this goal, or any additional savings you might need to start to contribute.

The calculator provides quite a lot of functionality, including:

  1. An ability to put in a number of different retirement income levels you may receive at different stages of retirement. This may include government pensions or other sources of income you would expect through retirement. These retirement incomes can be adjusted by a cost of living adjustment factor.
  2. You can include a one-time benefit to be given at a certain age. This could be used to represent say the sale of a property.
  3. A desired level of retirement income. This does not need to be inflation adjusted as the calculator can apply an expected rate of inflation. This retirement income can also be reduced by a given percentage every few years.
  4. You can factor in an estate you would like to leave.
  5. Additionally, you can input details of your savings plan such as your current savings, what your monthly contributions will be starting at the end of the current year, what age you plan to stop your savings and the interest rate you expect to earn.

As well as calculating an estimate of your required savings for retirement and how your savings plan may support your requirements, the calculator will also produce a yearly schedule of your retirement savings and requirements. This schedule breaks down a number of factors such as your balance, contributions, interest earnings and inflated needs by year.

This schedule is useful to get an idea of how your savings plan, additional retirement incomes and the effects of inflation on your retirement needs may be dependent on your inputs to the calculator. You can see their impact through the years before retirement and moving through your retirement as you withdraw from your savings.

It can help give an overall picture and breakdown of how your retirement plan might work through time.

Please understand that it is important to get advice from a professional to plan your retirement savings. This retirement savings calculator is designed as a general calculator to give a basic idea of where your retirement savings may place you for retirement.
