How do I know what my living expenses will be when I retire?

Our living expenses calculator will help you compare your current expenses against what you’ve planned for in retirement. For example, you may want to travel more, which would increase your expenses. Or you could pay off your mortgage, which would decrease your expenses. Our calculator will help determine if your current retirement savings plan will enable you to have the quality of retirement you want.
