On this spreadsheet it will show you how much money you need to live from age 65 all the way to age 117 at two inflation rates – one at 2% and the other at 3%.

Here is what we did.  We assume that you retire at age 65 and then live to be 117 years old.

We assumed that you need just $50,000 of income starting at age 65.  Yeah we realize that you may require much different income.

We then used a 2% inflation rate in one set of calculations and a 3% inflation rate in the other set of calculations.

The spreadsheet then TOTALS up all of the income from age 65 to 117 to give us a running total of dollars you would need over that time period.

So can you make it for 52 years in retirement?   Click here to find out.
