You have been hired as a benefit consultant by Jean Honore, the owner of Kingbird Angels. She wants to establish a retirement plan for herself and her three employees. Jean has provided the following information. The retirement plan is to be based upon annual salary for the last year before retirement and is to provide 50% of Jean’s last-year annual salary and 40% of the last-year annual salary for each employee. The plan will make annual payments at the beginning of each year for 20 years from the date of retirement. Jean wishes to fund the plan by making 15 annual deposits beginning January 1, 2017. Invested funds will earn 11% compounded annually. Information about plan participants as of January 1, 2017, is as follows.

Jean Honore, owner: Current annual salary of $50,610; estimated retirement date January 1, 2042.
Colin Davis, flower arranger: Current annual salary of $36,190; estimated retirement date January 1, 2047.

Gavin Bryars, part-time bookkeeper: Current annual salary of $15,020; estimated retirement date January 1, 2032.

In the past, Jean has given herself and each employee a year-end salary increase of 4%. Jean plans to continue this policy in the future.
