SIMPLE IRA Retirement Calculator

To determine how much income your SIMPLE IRA will pay you now or in the future, use this payout calculator to get accurate annual amounts updated in real-time.

How This SIMPLE IRA Payout Calculator Works

This calculator uses annuities with guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefits to calculate how much monthly income you can receive from your SIMPLE IRA. These are actual numbers and not estimates. We use annuities to determine the payout because they contractually guarantee payment for the rest of your lifetime, and any remaining balance will be passed down to your beneficiaries, relieving the stress of worrying about running out of money.

This method usually pays you a higher monthly payout than traditional withdrawal methods.

And don’t worry. There are no tax consequences for transferring to an IRA annuity.

What is a SIMPLE IRA?

A SIMPLE IRA (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees) is a retirement plan for small businesses with 100 or fewer employees. It offers tax advantages and is easy to administer, making it an attractive option for employers and employees.

  1. Eligibility:
    • Employers with 100 or fewer employees who earned at least $5,000 in the preceding year can establish a SIMPLE IRA.
    • Employees who earned at least $5,000 in any two preceding years and expect to earn at least $5,000 in the current year are eligible to participate.
  2. Contributions:
    • Employee Contributions: In 2024, employees can contribute up to $16,000 annually, with an additional catch-up contribution of $3,500 for those aged 50 or older, bringing the total to $19,500.
    • Employer Contributions: Employers must make a matching contribution of up to 3% of the employee’s compensation or a non-elective contribution of 2% for each eligible employee.
  3. Tax Benefits:
    • For Employees: Contributions are made pre-tax, reducing taxable income for the year. Investments grow tax-deferred until withdrawn.
    • For Employers: Contributions are tax-deductible as a business expense.
  4. Vesting: Contributions to a SIMPLE IRA are immediately 100% vested, meaning employees own all the money in their accounts, including employer contributions, right away.
  5. Distributions:
  6. Administrative Simplicity: SIMPLE IRAs are easy to set up and maintain, with minimal paperwork and reporting requirements compared to other retirement plans like 401(k)s.
