Question

You believe you will need to have saved $500,000 by the time you retire in 46 years in order to live comfortably. You also believe that you will inherit $10,000 in 10 years. If the interest rate is 6% per year, how much must you save each year to meet your retirement goal?

Answer #1

You have to accumulate $500,000 in 46 years for a comfortable life.

You will inherit $10,000 in 10 years. Deposit that $10,000 at the rate of 6% for next 36 years. It will become $81,472.52 (Formula=(10000*(1+6%)^36))

Now, the actual money you have to accumulate is $500,000-$81,472.52=$418,527.48

To accumulate $418,527.48 in 46 years, you have do yearly deposits. This can be calculated by using PMT function in EXCEL

PMT(rate,nper,pv,fv,type)

PMT(6%,46,0,418,527.48,0)

$1,847.74

You have to invest $1,847.74 every year.

Question 3 You believe you will spend $40,000 a year for 20
years once you retire in 40 years (you should assume that the first
$40,000 happens at the end of year 40). If the interest rate is 5%
per year, how much must you save each year until your retirement
(at the end of year 40) to meet your retirement goal?

You calculate you’ll need $2,600,000 saved for retirement when
you plan to retire in 40 years. You think you will earn 12% per
year on your investments (ignore taxes) and currently have no
savings. You want to save the same amount each month going forward
(i.e. your monthly contribution to your retirement fund will always
be the same), and you will save this amount at the end of each
month. How much money do you need to save each month...

You believe you will need $1.75 million to live comfortably
while retired. You are 35 and plan on retiring when you are 65 and
will begin withdrawing funds from your retirement account on your
66th birthday. You expect to need 25 years of retirement
income. Calculate the amount you must invest annually in
real dollars to meet your retirement goal. Assume 7% is the fair
nominal rate and inflation is 3% per year (the real rate is
3.89%).
