This calculator is inspired by a couple of posts (links below) on retirement by Subramoney. It allows you to guess how much you need for financial independence during retirement and computes the corresponding pension or how long the corpus will last if it has to match future expenses indexed to inflation. It also calculates the monthly investment amount needed to generate corpus guessed.
Math-wise it is similar to my other retirement calculators. Many people find the large corpus given by these calculators scary. So hopefully this guesstimator will help people understand why such large corpuses are unfortunately necessary for financial independence during retirement.
