Financial Calculators

Our goal is to promote financial literacy with these calculators and help you get the most out of your money & life. Since we are not a bank or a broker, our calculators take an unbiased approach (when applicable). One of our core values is to be thorough. We like to show you the many facets of what is going on with each calculation. For example, with our loan calculators the total cost over the life of the loan is prominently displayed. All loan calculators have an option for making additional payments. When an additional payment is entered the reduction in total interest and number of payments required is displayed.

We'd love to hear from you! That includes ideas for how we can improve our calculators. So far we've launched 11 financial calculators across the topics listed below.
