Retirement Calculators

Tools to help you plan and allocate your assets for retirement.

Roth vs. Traditional

An IRA can be an effective retirement tool. There are two basic types of Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA): the Roth IRA and the Traditional IRA. Use this tool to determine which IRA may be right for you. Please note, that this calculator should not be used for Roth 401(k) comparisons.

Traditional IRA Savings Growth

Contributing to a traditional IRA can create a current tax deduction, plus it provides for tax-deferred growth.

[Run Calculator]

Roth IRA

Contributing to a Roth IRA can make a big difference in your retirement savings. There is no tax deduction for contributions made to a Roth IRA, however all future earnings are sheltered from taxes, under current tax laws provided certain conditions are met.

Savings Calculators

Tools to help you plan your savings goals over time.

College Savings Planner

Saving for your children's education requires a long-term plan. And, like saving for retirement, the earlier you start your plan the better. Use this calculator to help develop or fine-tune your education savings plan.

[Run Calculator]

Savings, Taxes, and Inflation

Use this calculator to determine how much your savings will be worth with these two important variables in mind.

[Run Calculator]

Savings Goal

Find out how consistent investments over a number of years can be an effective strategy to accumulate wealth.

[Run Calculator]

Income Tax Calculator

Simply select your tax filing status and enter a few other details to estimate your total taxes. Based on your projected withholdings for the year, we then show you your refund or the amount you may owe the IRS next April.

[Run Calculator]

Self-Employment Tax

Use this calculator to estimate your self-employment taxes. Normally these taxes are withheld by your employer. However, if you are self-employed, operate a farm or are a church employee you may owe self-employment taxes.

[Run Calculator]

Net Worth

Your net worth is the value of all of your assets, minus the total of all of your liabilities. Put another way, it is what you own minus what you owe. If you owe more than you own, you have a negative net worth. If you own more than you owe you will have a positive net worth. This calculator helps you determine your net worth and estimates how it could grow (or shrink) over the next ten years.

[Run Calculator]

Financial Ratios

This calculator is designed to show you 10 different financial ratios. Financial ratios are used as indicators that allow you to zero in on areas of your business that may need attention such as solvency, liquidity, operational efficiency and profitability.

[Run Calculator]

Investment Calculators

Tools to help you determine present/future value, accumulation and asset allocation.

Asset Allocator

The asset allocation is designed to help you create a balanced portfolio of investments. Your age, ability to tolerate risk and several other factors are used to calculate a desirable mix of stocks, bonds and cash. The calculated asset allocation is a great place to start your analysis in building a balanced portfolio.

[Run Calculator]

Investment Returns

Many investments are taxed differently. For example with bonds, some may be taxed federally only, some may be taxed at the state level only, and some may be taxed both at the state and federal level. Use this calculator to help make an apple-to-apple comparison of varying investment returns.

[Run Calculator]

Future Value of Payments

Use this calculator to determine the effective annual yield on an investment.

[Run Calculator]

Business Valuation — Discounted Cash Flow

Business valuation is typically based on three major methods: the income approach, the asset approach and the market (comparable sales) approach. Among the income approaches is the discounted cash flow methodology calculating the net present value ('NPV') of future cash flows for an enterprise. As an alternative to the more abbreviated income capitalization approach, this methodology is more relevant where future operating conditions and cash flows are variable or not projected to be materially consistent with current performance levels.

[Run Calculator]

Insurance Calculators

Tools to help you assess insurance, annuity and long-term care needs.

Long-Term Care

Long term care is needed by those who can't perform the basic tasks required to take care of themselves. This can include people suffering from a debilitating illness or chronic injury. The need for long term care can arise unexpectedly, often creating a large financial burden. Use this calculator to determine your potential long-term care needs and how long your current assets might last.

[Run Calculator]

Life Expectancy

How much you need for retirement depends a great deal on how long you expect to live. This calculator can give you an idea of your life expectancy based on your current age, smoking habits, gender and several other important lifestyle choices.

[Run Calculator]

Disability Insurance

One of the most common causes of income loss is through a disability. While most disabilities cause only temporary loss of income, any income loss can be devastating if you are not financially prepared. This calculator helps you determine how much disability insurance you may need to cover expenses during such a disability.

[Run Calculator]

Estate Tax Planning

Estate tax planning is very important to preserving your wealth for future generations. Knowing your potential estate tax liability is a great place to start your estate tax plan. Use this calculator to project the value of your estate, and the associated estate tax.
