Retirement Income Calculator - Beta Version

Retirement Income Calculator– Beta Version

The Committee on Knowledge Extension Research (CKER) is pleased to make available, free of charge, this Beta version of the Retirement Income Calculator software created by William Leslie. This software was produced with funding awarded through CKER’s annual grant competition.

The software was developed as a pedagogical tool to help demonstrate the impact of a change in Retirement Income strategy on potential financial outcomes. A user can consider various strategies of longevity and asset performance risk transferal and observe the resulting changes on a range of modeled outcomes. The overall purpose is to provide an understanding of the trade–offs of risk and reward in retirement strategies.

Note: The software is not intended as a comprehensive retirement planning and should not be used, under any situation, for these purposes.
