They are both 35 years old and have 85,00 in a company retirement plan which they can roll over into their own plan. They want to retire at 67 but re wondering what effect retiring a year or two earlier or later will have on their retirement. Their combined income is 120,000 per year, and they want to finance the same income in retirement. When they retire they can purchase a two-life annuity with an expected second death at age 87. Prepare a plan with some alternative rates of return and retirement dates and explain what annual contributions they must make. Last edited by hanjy; December 7th, 2016 at 07:47 PM.

Are you serious? You want us to do all the work?
Why don't you show us what YOU've done so far...

Can you handle this:
Initial investment: 85,000
Term: 67-35 = 32 years
Annual rate: 5%
Required total investment after 32 years: 1,500,000
What annual contribution must be made to achieve above?

 December 7th, 2016, 09:09 PM #3 Newbie   Joined: Nov 2016 From: Chicago Posts: 5 Thanks: 0 I plugged those numbers into financial calculator pv= -85,000, n=32, i=5, fv= 1,500,000 pmt= -14541.79 could you explain how you got interest to be 5% and total investment after 32 years to be 1,500,000? What does the 2 life annuity with an expect death at 87 mean?

That had NOTHING to do with the problem; I wanted to see if
you could calculate such an example WITHOUT a financial calculator.

Are you saying you were given that problem and your teacher
gave no explanations?
