Investment Tips: 403(b) Savings Calculator

Use the Savings Calculator below to gain a general estimate of future savings growth in your 403(b) or 457(b) account under a variety of assumptions.

This tool is especially useful in illustrating the power of starting early, increasing contributions regularly, and the impact of fees on returns. After entering your data, click "View Report" to see and print a customized report reflecting your individual assumptions.

You can also email calculations to yourself. After entering assumptions in the form fields below and selecting "Calculate," click the box with the three bars that is in the top left corner of the calculator. Enter your email address, name the assumption (for example, "0.1% fees"), and select "save." Then click "Email" at top to send. Repeat for other assumptions. You can save up to 10 data sets by selecting "Create Saved Entry" and hitting "save." To retrieve a saved entry, click on its name and select "get."

Calculators not available on small screens.
