Favorites and Recommendations

The following is a list of Leisure Freak Tommy’s Favorites and Recommendations for retirement calculator Links and some Affiliate Sites. All of the below are sites and products that I recommend and use myself.

My Favorites and Recommendations

Recommended Calculators

These links are calculators that I use and highly recommend:


A different kind of retirement calculator. This calculator allows you to change your investment strategy, when and how much you expect from Social Security, and various spending and investment models. This is a Monte Carlo type calculator which uses 113 investment cycles to find the likelihood of your retirement funding success for the years of retirement you entered.

72t on the Net

A great calculator for anyone contemplating establishing a SEPP 72t IRA account to fund their retirement. I used many calculators for this and this one is by far the best of them. They even show the projected interest rates that you should use for the near future months. (Note: if the link takes you to the 72t on the net site and it does not open the page, place your cursor in the url address box behind the url address and hit enter).

Immediate Annuities.com

An advanced annuity calculator. You can calculate either how much monthly income you’ll receive from an Investment amount you enter or how much you’ll need to invest in order to receive the Monthly Income amount you enter.

QLAC – Qualified Longevity Annuity Contract by annuities.com

This calculator works the same way as their main annuity calculator but in this case is about QLAC annuities which are a US Treasury approved type of differed-longevity annuity.


A free longevity calculator that we used to find our longevity prediction is Livingto100.com.  You honestly enter in your life’s specific personal aspects.  Health and health habits, vices, your family history, etc. Answer approximately 40 questions and it will give you an educated age prediction for your longevity.

Affiliate Sites Whose Products and Services I use and recommend.
bluehost unlimited web hosting

Simply the easiest and super economical choice for your web site and/or blog. Believe me, I had no experience creating a website. But having bluehost as my host and their compatibility with WordPress made it one of the easiest ways to get a web site up and functional in a single sitting.

Life Extension vitamins and supplements

I have been a customer of Life Extension for many years and use their products daily. You get discounts and specials while buying the best. Not only are they quality products but they also put out the latest information about health in their magazines and email newsletters so you can educate yourself and stay healthy.


We have used this site for a couple of years to print money-saving coupons for grocery and household items. Easy to use allowing you to select only the coupons you want to print.


I have used the Snag-a-Job search engines to look for Early Retirement Opportunities and it is very easy to navigate and get the targeted results I was looking for. Having my specific job alerts set to email me new postings saved me time. There are many job search engines on the web but Snag-a-Job is one I recommend to use and create your free account on.
