Value after n years= A [ {(1+r)^n -1}/r] A- the amount you're setting aside per year r- rate of interest you're getting n- no. of years

It will depend upon your retirement plan. It is usually annual. However, if it is compounding then, the value of n will change. For example, if the plan is compounding 2 times a year (half-yearly compounding) then the the value of n will 2*(no. of years).

do you know the approximate rate of interest you'll be earning?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not really. its in the stock market so it varies. usually the standard to expect is 7-8%

using the formula i stated before, you can get an approximate idea. For instance, if you put in 3000 in the begining of every year for 10 years, you'll get = 3000 [ (1.08^10 -1)/0.08] = 43459.6 after 10 years
