Let's say you will be receiving this pension next year
and it will be paid on a yearly basis and let's use your 6% and assume you will receive this $45,000/yr for
another 30 years.

N=30
I/Y=6
PMT=-45,000
FV=0

CPT PV (Compute PV) = $134,582.86
----------------------------------------------


JABoa is the math king around here. He can speak to the details. My eyeball approximation says that $134,582.86 is to small. Assuming beginning of year payment, then first year alone is 45k, second year is roughly $42,450, and third year is roughly 40k for a 3 year total of 127,450; the remaining 27 years must be worth more than $7,200. Even assuming end of year payments, I doubt value would drop that low.


Yes, I get a PV of $619,417 for the same data (end of period payments.) So a value of $600k to $700k seems reasonable.

Cheers,
