Fire Calc Results

After you input your numbers into FireCalc and get the results and it shows you your remaining balance at the end of your retirement in Low $, High$ and Average$.* Are those remaining $ figures inflation adjusted or before inflation?

Also, on a 100% stock portfolio, what average gross yearly return is being assumed?

Mod, I think you will find your answer here:


Numbers is hard

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life

The beauty of FIREcalc is that it assumes nothing. It uses historical returns and historical inflation to tell you how well your portfolio would have done throughout the history of the US market.
