Question re: Fidelity RIP detailed cash flow

In looking at the Fidelity RIP detailed cash flow results I'm not understanding why the pension field isn't growing by the % of inflation that I've assumed.

Social security is growing in the cash flow model at the 2.5% inflation I've assumed but pension is staying in today's dollars. So from what I'm seeing it's not showing me a true picture of what I'll have to withdraw to cover expenses.

What am I missing?

Fidelity really needs a new acronym. Every time I see it, I think Fidelity has folded.

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.

Next to the pension calcualtion is and edit field. If you click that on the word edit, on the next screen is a question "Adjust Income to Future Dollars?"
