Thanks guys for trying to help. I feel kinda foolish--small f--now. I was thinking of something <really simple>, along the lines of:

"If I start an IRA this year, add the new amount (plus my boomer catch up bonus) in the years after that, and assume x rate of return for x years--how much might I have?"

I have seen calculators like this before the law changed, but now the amount contributed can change along the way, and my math skills are not nearly that good. It would be interesting to get an idea of how much more we can save this way as compared to the way it has been.

Perhaps as time goes on someone will create such a calculator for folks like me. :-)
