Have you tried Uncle Sam's Retirement calculator?

Uncle-Sam's-Top-Notch-Retirement-Calculator: Personal Finance News from Yahoo! Finance

Its description appealed to me to try but when I went on EBSA website I got lost and I found neither a booklet nor a calculator.

Can someone direct me the right path?

If you tried it, how good is it? I'd like to try it because I don't think I understand FIRE calculator

utilizing 7% projected returns and 5% on the house (ok, so i'm an optimist), the government calculator gives me an 8.9% swr over the next 44 years. apparently it doesn't think i'm gonna make it to age 100 but it's going to assure i arrive there broke.
