Calculation: This calculator shows how much a potential investment with and without a tax liability (Roth IRA) could earn,
based on your expected average annual rate of return with monthly or annual compounding, depending on the frequency of your contributions. Our calculator assumes you make your contribution at the beginning of each period.
The value "Additional payments increase annually by (%)" is the percentage by which the additional payments are increased annually. This is a good way to compensate for inflation.
If you would like to know what the average stock market returns have been in recent years, you can get an analysis of these developments in our article "Stock Market Returns And Duration Of Crises".
Initial: Amount with which the investment is started.
