cfiresim question

When I enter 36k draw for 50 years and starting date of 2018, on the right hand side it has a withdrawal analysis showing "beginning third" with an amount less than 36k.....why would that be?

You can try any numbers you want and any number of years with any start date 2020 or earlier and it seems to exhibit this behavior. What is meant by beginning third anyways?

Perhaps this question would be better suited over on the cfiresim blogs/forum on their site.

Inflation caused it to be worth less than today's 36k? Try an immediate retirement.
