Retirement calculator

The financial calculators on this website are intended only as guidelines. The results will only be useful if appropriate inputs are used. The calculators may provide projections of uncertain future outcomes. Actual future values will be based on actual future experience and will differ from these projections. Before you take any action based on these calculations, we recommend that you seek sound financial advice from a registered financial adviser.

There’s no better time than now to start saving for your retirement. But how much should you save? Complete the calculator to find out what you need to save monthly to enjoy your golden years.

If you are a Reality Health, Reality Plus or Reality Core member, and you are logged in, you will be awarded 1000 points when you use the calculator for the first time. These will reflect on your profile on your next log in.

  • The maximum earnable points per year is 5 000 (on Single or Family membership options)
  • The maximum combined points for quizzes, financial calculators and financial questionnaires apply.
