determine annual shortfall.
[5]
\$ 0.00
Divide [5] by assumed net after-tax interest rate
(e.g., 2.7 per cent), as in Step [B] to determine Additional
Capital Required to meet your survivors’ income needs.

Note: As an illustration, assume that the income-producing assets of your estate could earn a gross return of 4.5 per cent a year. This
equates to a net after-tax annual interest rate of approximately 2.7 per cent. Using this assumed net interest rate, each \$1,000 in your
estate will provide an income of approximately \$27 a year, or \$2.25 a month.
The income earned will rise and fall with interest rates, and will be affected by your actual tax rate.
