What Will Your Money Be Worth?

If you are not planning for inflation in your retirement you won’t be able to afford the life style you are living today.


Inflation = the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is rising and, consequently, the purchasing power of currency is falling.

Here is a simple fact, the money you have today will not buy tomorrow what it will buy today.

$100 in 1997 you need $153.10 today in 2017 to buy same goods and services.
$100 today in 2017 at 2.5% inflation rate you will need $163.86 in 2037 to buy same goods and services.

(2.5% future inflation rate is a conservative number and calculations which change dramatically if United States goes into high inflation or hyperinflation.)
