Why Excel based Calculators?
Because our downloadable calculators are Excel based, there are no limitations
to the level of detail and accuracy we can offer. Online financial calculators
however, are limited by load time, and other web code constraints. As a
result, their answers are often inaccurate and misleading; ultimately lulling
users into a false sense of security.
Staying true to our name, Simpleplanning.com is dedicated to spreading financial awareness and knowledge to the masses
via our easy to use Excel spreadsheet calculators. With the right tools,
financial planning can be simple.
Understand your financial assumptions:
A retirement plan is only as good as the assumptions used. We can
not stress enough the importance of understanding the variables and assumptions
you use when building a retirement plan. A slight overestimation of investment
returns or underestimation of inflation can have an enormous impact on
the longevity of your funds and ultimately your post-retirement quality
When building a retirement plan, save two versions- one
with medium risk and one with low risk (low investment returns, high inflation,
etc.) This will prepare you for the worst, while educating you on the sensitivity
of long term financial planning.
Money Back Guarantee: If for some reason you are not pleased with our retirement calculator,
just let us know and we'll refund your money right away- we only want satisfied
