- Contributions are made at the end of the period.
- The maximum pre-tax amount that you are allowed to contribute to this plan is capped annually by the IRS. This calculator will not check to see if you are over-contributing! That is a function of your plan administrator. Please click this link for up to date details and limits.
- What will be the approximate value of your 401(k) in 10 years?
- The assumptions:
- You currently have $20,000 in your 401(k). Your annual salary is $50,000 and you hope to receive a 3% annual salary increase. You are contributing 6% of your salary to the plan (invested monthly in a mutual fund) and your employer will match your contribution 100% up to a maximum of 6% of your annual salary. They are matching that on an annual basis. The plan has been earning an average of 11% (compounded annually) per year, and you expect that to continue.
Press View Schedule You will have $ 171,725.44 in your 401(k) in 10 years (assuming all variables are met, of course).
