Help determine your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from a traditional 401(k) or IRA. In general, you must begin withdrawing money by April 1 of the year following the year that you turn 70½. In general, your age and account value determine the amount you must withdraw. Note that taxes may be due on distributions from a traditional IRA or 401(k). Do not include balances from a Roth IRA or 401(k).
Use this college savings calculator to determine the amount you must invest each year to have enough money to cover all college costs. You also may want to read FINRA’s publication providing information and guidance about college savings plan options, including 529 plans.
Like most investments, 529 college savings plans have fees and expenses that are paid by investors. Because these fees and expenses can vary widely from plan to plan, FINRA developed a tool to help you compare how these fees and expenses can reduce returns. The 529 expense analyzer is designed to work with most college savings plans. It is not intended for prepaid tuition plans or the CollegeSure® CD investment option available in some college savings plans.
Use this loan calculator to determine the monthly payment for a fixed-rate loan. For car loans, determine if a longer term makes sense. Your monthly payment will drop though your total cost will rise. For a mortgage, run it twice to compare two offers or the merits of refinancing. See how much a monthly payment drops by reducing the interest rate by just one half of one percent.
