Is Your Net Worth Greater Than You Think?

Our mission is to help you understand your net worth – what you have minus what you owe – through the Personal Capital Dashboard.

Know Your Net Worth

What is Net Worth?

Your net worth is an equation: every significant thing you own (assets) minus what you owe (your debts and other liabilities).


Includes what you may owe on your assets and other debts, such as a mortgage, car and student loans, and credit card debt.


Includes cash, investments such as IRAs, 401k accounts, other retirement accounts, bonds, and stocks, your home and other valuables such as your vehicles and jewelry.

Why Knowing Your Net Worth Matters

Compare yourself to others - track your progress as compared to the average net worth for your age or income bracket.

Median US Household Net Worth

As shown in this chart, the median US household net worth is not sufficient for most investors to realize a comfortable retirement. Net worth peaks at retirement age for those 65+ since house and property values may account for the majority of the net worth calculation. For younger age brackets, net worth is impacted by holding significant debt such as a mortgage and student loans, along with lower salaries and assets, but over time these investments may result in higher net worth households.
