II. Retirement Planning
A 52-year-old client asks an accountant how to plan for his future retirement at age 62. He expects income from Social Security in the amount of $21,600 per year and a retirement pension of $40,500 per year from his employer. He wants to make monthly contributions to an investment plan that pays 8% compounded monthly for 10 years so that he will have a total income of $83,700 per year for 30 years. What must the size of the monthly contributions be to accomplish this goal, if it is assumed that money will be worth 8% compounded continuously throughout the period after he is 62?
To help you answer this question, complete the following.
How much money S must the clients account contain when he is 62 so that it will generate this annual amount for 30 years? (Hint: S can be considered the present value over 30 years of a continuous income stream with the amount you found in Question 1 as its annual rate of flow.)
