  • Hi -- Congratulations for knowing how much income you want and for how long. This is a great first step toward a more secure retirement.

    We hope that the NewRetirement Retirement Calculator was able to answer your question for you.

    If Social Security and other lifetime income sources like pensions do not add up to your desired $100,000 income, then you need to figure out the difference. How much more income do you need. Pricing a lifetime annuity can give you a good idea of how much you should have saved to guarantee a certain amount of monthly income. You can estimate the cost of monthly income here:
