**Decision #2: Planning for Retirement**

** **

Luke and Olivia are 22, newly married, and ready to embark on the journey of life. They both plan to retire 45 years from today. Because their budget seems tight right now, they had been thinking that they would wait at least 10 years and then start investing $1800 per year to prepare for retirement. Olivia just told Luke, though, that she had heard that they would actually have more money the day they retire if they put $1800 per year away for the next 10 years - and then simply let that money sit for the next 35 years without any additional payments - than they would have if they waited 10 years to start investing for retirement and then made yearly payments for 35 years (as they originally planned to do).

** **

**Please help Luke and Olivia make an informed decision: **

** **

*Assume that all payments are made at the end of a year, and that the rate of return on all yearly investments will be 8.4% annually*.

a) How much money will Luke and Olivia have in 45 years if they do nothing for the next 10 years, then put $1800 per year away for the remaining 35 years?

b) How much money will Luke and Olivia have in 10 years if they put $1800 per year away for the next 10 years?

b2) How much will that amount you just computed grow to if it remains invested for the remaining

35 years, but without any additional yearly deposits being made?

**c) **How much money will Luke and Olivia have in 45 years if they put $1800 per year away for each of the next 45 years?

**d) ** How much money will Luke and Olivia have in 45 years if they put away $150 ** per MONTH** at the end of each month for the next 45 years? (

**e) **If Luke and Olivia wait 25 years (after the kids are raised!) before they put anything away for retirement, how much will they to put away ** at the end of each year** for 20 years in order to have $800,000 saved up on the first day of their retirement 45 years from today?

Option C: Receive a one-time gift of $15,000 10 years from today
Present value of a cash flow over time is its value today
Computing the Present Value of each of these options
We use this formula;
Pv=C [1-(1+i)^-n]/i
Where C=cash flow per period
n=number of payments
i=interest rate
WHEN i=3%
CASE A
Pv=$8000
CASE B
C=1250,n=10 yrs ,i=3%=0.03
Pv=1250*[1-(1+0.03)^-10]/0.03
Pv=$ 10662.754
CASE C
C=15000
n=10/10=1
i= [3*10] %=30%=0.3
Pv=C [1-(1+i)^-n]/i
Pv=15000*[1-(1+0.3)^-1]/0.3
Pv=$ 11538.462
Option A would be worth $_______8000___ today.
Option B would be worth $_____10662.274_____ today.
Option C would be worth $___11538.462_______ today.
Financial theory supports choosing Option _C_____because its worthy more than the other
WHEN i=6%
CASE A
Pv=$8000
CASE B
C=1250,
n=10 yrs,
i=6%=0.06
Pv=1250*[1-(1+0.06)^-10]/0.06
Pv=$ 9200.109
CASE C
C=15000
n=10/10=1
i=[6*10]%=60%=0.6
Pv=C[1-(1+i)^-n]/i
Pv=15000*[1-(1+0.6)^-1]/0.6
Pv=$ 9375
Option A would be worth $_____8000_____ today.
Option B would be worth $__9200.109________ today.
