“Rule of 72” estimates how long it takes tax-free & deferred money to double given an anticipated growth rate. Simply divide the anticipated growth rate into 72 to determine the number of years. Example: tax-deferred money growing at 6% would double in approximately 12 years.

Worth consideration: “Rule of 108” estimates the time needed for a taxable account…such as a CD…to double, assuming an anticipated growth rate. The taxable money will double in approximately 22 years at a 5% growth rate.

*Once funds are withdrawn from a tax-deferred annuity they become taxable. The Rule of 72 works for estimating annuity growth. Any withdrawals, taxes and surrender charges are not considered in these rules.
