## What Is a Future Value of Annuity Calculator?

A Future Value of Annuity Calculator is a financial tool that estimates the future value of a series of regular payments, called an annuity, given a specified interest rate and period. It is essential for financial planning, investment analysis, and understanding the growth of funds over time.

### Key Concepts

• Annuity: A financial contract involving a series of regular payments made over a specified period.
• Ordinary Annuity: An annuity where payments are made at the end of each period.
• Annuity Due: An annuity where payments are made at the beginning of each period.
• Future Value: The value of an asset or a stream of payments at a specified future date, considering interest earned.
• Interest Rate: The percentage of an amount charged for borrowing money or paid for investing money over a specified period, expressed as an annual percentage rate (APR).
• Compounding Interest: The process of earning interest on both the principal amount and the accumulated interest.

## Formulas for Calculating Future Value of Annuities

### Ordinary Annuity:

FV = P * [(1 + r/n)^(n*t) – 1] / (r/n)

Where:

• FV = Future Value
• P = Periodic Payment
• r = Interest Rate (annual)
• n = Number of Compounding Periods per Year
• t = Number of Years

### Annuity Due:

FV = P * [(1 + r/n)^(n*t) – 1] / (r/n) * (1 + r/n)
