Retirement Stats

Planning For Retirement Is An Everyday Occasion!


Here's why:

On average, U.S. inflation has risen 3.21% every year for the past century, doubling prices every 22 years. So, if you're 45 years old today, you can expect to see prices double—and your money lose half its value—not once, but twice during your retirement years.

It's a reality you have to consider when saving and planning for retirement.

Based on your current income, future income needs,  and inflation determine how much capital you will need to have a 30 year sinking fund at retirement. To modify the field just highlight the entire number including the dollar sign or percent sign and type over the number.   If you are modifying a percentage field enter the new number as a decimal.  12% is entered as  .12  or  4% is entered as .04.




Living longer: increasing life spans create the risk you’ll outlive your savings.

Inflation: Rising healthcare costs, increasing general living costs, and taxes can erode your future purchasing power.

Market uncertainty: market volatility and low interest rates can have a devastating impact on your retirement income.
