How much must Mpumi contribute to be able to have sufficient monthly payments after retirement? Transcribed Image Text: Mpumi Madonsela has recently qualified to be a Chartered Management Accountant and she
is working at one of the big four accounting firms. Due to the limited salary of an article clerk,
Mpumi did not contribute to any provident fund. Fortunately for her, the firm contributed to a
pension fund on her behalf. She was not content with only a pension fund but was adamant
that she wanted a provident fund to supplement her very extravagant life style.
Mpumi decided that on 1 January 2019, she would begin contributing to a selected provident
fund. Her contributions towards this provident fund will be monthly in arrears. She wanted to
get a lump sum pay-out on retirement date at the age of 65. Mpumi planned to put the lump
sum in a money market account at a bank and withdraw a monthly amount for the rest of her
life. The monthly amount must be an amount that will be able to maintain two and a half times
her 1st year post article salary.
Additional information:
1. Mpumi will be turning 26 on 1 January 2019
2. Mpumi was signed off from her articles by CIMA on 1 January 2018. The
accounting firm gave her a salary increase to R22 000 per month.
3. Currently the provident fund industry provide a return of 8% compounded monthly
to try and be ahead of inflation.
4. Mpumi wants to contribute a maximum of R2 000 per month until she is 55 years
old. Then the provident fund will invest the capital due to her at that stage in an
interest bearing account until she retires. The provident fund guarantees that the
interest bearing account will yield a 9% return compounded monthly.
5. The required return from retirement date onwards is expected to remain at 9% per
annum.
