Use this calculator to compute how much you would need to have invested in
order to withdraw a specified amount each year over the course of a specified
period of time. For example, if you want to be able to withdraw $500 during each
month of your expected 20year retirement, this calculator will tell you that
if you expect to earn a 10% interest rate you will need to have $51,812.30 saved
up by the time you retire. This is often referred to as "Present Value of an Annuity"
analysis. To compute the Present Value of an Annuity, fill in the first three
text boxes and then click the "compute" button. Note: Other
than decimal points, do not enter any other nonnumeric characters (commas, dollar
signs, etc.) in the entry boxes. Doing so will cause a JavaScript error.
