Here’s how it works:

  • Future Value of Current Savings: Calculated as 𝑃×(1+𝑟)𝑛P×(1+r)n, where 𝑃P is the current savings, 𝑟r is the annual return rate, and 𝑛n is the total years until retirement.
  • Future Value of Monthly Savings: Calculated as 𝑃𝑀𝑇×(1+𝑟)𝑛−1𝑟PMT×r(1+r)n−1​, where 𝑃𝑀𝑇PMT is the monthly savings.
  • Adjust for Inflation: The total future value is then adjusted for inflation using 𝐹𝑢𝑡𝑢𝑟𝑒 𝑉𝑎𝑙𝑢𝑒(1+𝑖)𝑛(1+i)nFuture Value​, where 𝑖i is the inflation rate.
