US version of the Ultimate Retirement Calculator?
« on: June 04, 2014, 04:36:21 PM »
Does anyone know if a US version of the Ultimate Retirement Calculator spreadsheet was made? (Canadian version first posted here: http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2011/06/14/a-retirement-calculator-for-canadians-and-you-too/) I tried searching both here and the main site, but the closest I came was a link to a page that seemed to be no longer available. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!!

There is a US version. 

It was on http://lifespreadsheet.com/ but that site appears to be dead.  Too bad.

I've attached a copy I had of it to this post.  I don't remember if I fucked with this copy or not, so assume any broken parts of the spreadsheet are due to me, and my apologies if that's the case and you have to undo something I broke.  I think it's intact though.

EDIT: Nevermind, attachment removed, the .com site is dead, but I found the wordpress site:
http://lifespreadsheet.wordpress.com/

Here is the download page:
http://lifespreadsheet.wordpress.com/download-the-spreadsheet/

The spreadsheet is on there.  Hope that helps.

EDIT 2: I went ahead and uploaded that spreadsheet as an attachment here in case that site ever goes down, so it is a clean copy now attached.

Todd Tresidder over at Financial Mentor refers to his as the "Ultimate Retirement Planning Calculator", but I don't think those terms are copyrighted:
