Indicate Your Marital Status

The calculator assumes retirement begins for a married couple when the first spouse retires. The working spouse’s salary will be treated as income earned in retirement. If you plan to retire in a different year than your spouse, consider running the detailed version of the calculator for each spouse separately and indicating “Single.” If one spouse is already retired, run the detailed version of the calculator and indicate “Single.”
