Retirement Plan1 Calculator
This is an interesting retirement calculator. I have included it because it may help you devise a way to build your own retirement plan.
This calculator calculates the withdrawal amount -- which increases each period and hopefully offsets the effects of inflation. However, if you have a variable interest rate, your withdrawal amount in any given period may actually decrease.
- You have $420,000 that you've invested in a mutual fund. You plan to take quarterly withdrawals. It's been regularly earning about 5% interest per year. The withdrawal is paid at the end of each quarter. You would like that to continue for 20 years (80 quarters).
On the calculator you will enter:
- 420000 for Beginning Balance
- 5 for Interest Rate (compounded annually)
- 20 for Years and select Quarterly for when the withdrawals are made.
- Press the View Schedule button to get a full schedule.
