This calculator will give you a feel for the factors that affect wealth accumulation and the amounts you can expect to have at various future points in time. Change the inputs to see the affect on how your money accumulates. Vary inflation, your return rate and your monthly deposit. Look at how the smallest change in any one variable changes the amount of wealth you have in future years.
