There are multiple calculators available online to determine the final dollar amounts you can roughly expect from an IRA. The one originally posted came from bankrate.com. Included are two additional resources which may help. Calculator.net allows the user to adjust for the inflation rate over time which may provide a more accurate amount, but you would need to study the historical inflation rate. The final calculator from rothira.com lets the user reverse the process by determining how much you would need to invest based upon your current situation to receive a set amount of income per year in retirement. This is useful if you are budget minded and have a set budget determined to last through your retirement years.
