She then wishes to draw a monthly pension starting one month after her 65th birthday, and ending on her 90th birthday, after which she expects that the fund will be fully expended If, after she reaches age 60, the fund continues to earn the above returm of 39% per annum, compounded monthly, calculate the monthly pension Lisa will be able to draw from the fund, starting one month after her 65th birthday.
