Planning calculators.

What our planning calculators do.

They can help you begin planning for your financial future. Simply by inputting some basic financial information and assumptions, you’ll take the first steps to meeting important financial goals.

And what they won’t do…

They cannot provide you with any final answers. Purely mechanical devices, calculators allow you to perform “hypotheticals,” recalculating and generating new results as you input differently and make new assumptions. But they can’t take every assumption into account. They can’t consider all the information relevant to your needs, and they obviously don’t make decisions for you. For that, you’ll want to learn more about the issues.

Using these tools and educating yourself on the workings of life insurance and other financial products can help you feel more comfortable when discussing your needs with such professionals as your New York Life agent.
