What is an investment calculator for? 

An investment calculator is a simple way to estimate how your money will grow if you continued investing at the rate you’re going right now. 

But remember—an investment calculator is not meant to replace the advice of a professional. If you need help with your investments, we recommend using an investment professional, someone who will help you understand what you’re investing in. If that’s your next step, we can help you connect with a pro near you.

How much will I need in retirement?

The real question is—what do you want to do in retirement? Do you want to travel? Spend time with your grandkids? Live in the mountains or on the beach? Deciding this now will bring you way closer to knowing how much you’ll need in retirement than any random number will.

Once you have a dream set, it’s time to turn your dream into a goal. That’s where the R:IQ (or Retire Inspired Quotient) comes in. The R:IQ was created by Ramsey Personality Chris Hogan to help you figure out the amount of money you’ll need to live out your dream. To calculate your R:IQ (without involving, you know, math), use Hogan’s R:IQ calculator. It’ll show you where you are financially, where you want to be, and how to get there.

How do I make investing a part of my overall financial plan?

Retirement is a big goal. If you approach investing like you would a piñata—running around and swinging blindly—you need to put down the bat and make a better plan (or rather a plan). 

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel here. You can follow a plan that’s helped millions of people put investing in their overall financial plan. It’s called the Baby Steps. With each step, you’ll change how you manage your money, including your investments.
