IRA Growth and Distribution Calculator

This calculator is for IRA owners under the age of 70-1/2. The calculator will create a year-to-year chart showing the future growth based on your expected rate of return. Then, once the chart reaches age 70-1/2 all rows thereafter will show the combined effects of interest earnings and minimum distributions. The Learn tab includes answers to:

  • When do withdrawals start?
  • What is the RMD formula?
  • What time of the year are distributions due?
