Have you ever wondered what the value of your working career might be if you could calculate it? Here’s a simple tool I found online which can help you make that calculation. It estimates the value of your work over the length of your career. It’ll certainly give you valuable information that can be useful when considering your past, future, and financial plans.
Knowing the value of your working career can also be utilized to help you determine if you want to insure those future earnings. The insurance most people use to protect their earning power is disability insurance.
The tool can also be useful to a retiree who may be considering the amount of long term care insurance they may need.
