Further Detail For the Investment Calculator Inputs
See below for more detail if you’re not exactly sure what each of the entries mean.
This one is the most basic entry needed here. Simply enter in your current age!
When do you plan on retiring? Enter that age here. Also, if you simply want to see how much money you have at a certain age (not necessarily when you retire), you can enter that age here too.
Current Investment Balance
How much money do you have in your investment accounts right now at your current age? That’s the amount that needs to be placed in this cell. *No need for dollar signs or commas, just key in the number.*
How much do you intend to contribute to your investments each month? If you have an employer match, be sure to include those funds too! *No need for dollar signs or commas, just key in the number.*
Expected Rate of Return
And, what percent do you expect to return on your money?
- If your money is in a savings account, it’s probably earning you 1% or less
- If you invest in individual stocks, the average investor earns 5%-6% this way
- But, if you invest in an S&P 500 Index fund, history has shown you could earn 11%-12%
(I personally invest in index funds and use a 10% rate as my estimate) *No need for the ‘%’ sign, just key in the number.*
