Is there a Retirement Calc that considers Roth and Trad. contr/dist.

Hi all ~
I am a new member but have been perusing the site for a year or so. Can anyone point me to a retirement calculator that allows you to input ROTH & Traditional (401k or IRA) info for both contribution phase and distribution phase?

Any help would be great.

Thanks, Rem.

Take a look at the "Optimal Retirement Calculator"

They do a good job that way...

Flexible Retirement Planner does too. It also lets you choose whether to use the money in tax deferred accounts before or after the money in a Roth.

If you are a Fidelity customer (via 401(k) or regular account) may I suggest the Retirement Income Planner (RIP)?

It takes a bit of work the first time in use (mostly concerning retirement expenses, along with modifications to those expenses over time), but I find value in it, since it will give you a forecast of taxes, RMD's, rate of withdrawl, over a year by year report (which runs 30+ pages), and also uses Morningstar info to break down your specific investments.

Just be aware that there are several FIDO forecast tools. This is the most detailed of those available via their site.

Just my $.02.
