Retirement Calculator

Let’s say for example that you want to retire early. How much money will you need? With the Retirement Calculator app, you can enter information such as desired retirement age, property value, available insurance and pension plans, income and other assets, and debts and expenses. You can use the calculator to get a good look at the big picture, and what sort of a challenge lies ahead in order for you to retire at the age you want. The app will give you a good idea of how long your savings will last you, what health care costs will look like, and how able you will be to sustain the kind of life quality you’ve grown accustomed to.

Vanguard Retirement Nest Egg Calculator

Not everyone has a nest egg, but for those who do, this is an Android app that can help you manage it better. Just enter the half-dozen variables to this free online app, things like how much of your portfolio is made up of stocks, bonds, or cash, how long you want the nest egg to last, how much you spend from it, and what the current balance stands at. By doing this, you can see if your investments will last for as long as you want them to. It’s a good way to see if perhaps you need to bolster that nest egg a bit; the sooner the better!

AARP Retirement Calculator

When it comes to retirement, who can to help you out than AARP? This free online app gives you a clear picture of what lies ahead for you financially. Just enter information about your household status, salary, retirement accounts, supplemental income, how long you anticipate working, and what kind of lifestyle you’re shooting for when you retire. The app will tell you how much money you need to have in order to make your retirement dream a reality.

Retire Logix

This is another free app, though you can pay $1.99 and get the Pro version. This app provides you with easy to read charts that give you an idea of how close you are to achieving your retirement goals. It even adjusts for inflation. The beauty of the Pro version is that it helps you factor in college expenses, if that’s still something you need to concern yourself with when you’re in retirement.

Born and raised in the Boston area, I was rocketed to New Hampshire, where under the Granite State's yellow sun and lack of income tax, I have gained the powers of super-sarcasm, brilliant creativity, and slightly disturbing sense of humor.
