Are the results of the Investigate option inflation adjusted?

After keying in my portfolio information I am using the option on the Investigate tab to ask FIRECalc to determine my spending level. I like the results that I get, but I'd like to confirm that the initial number, let's say it's $50k, is for the first year's withdrawal, and FIRECalc is assuming that subsequent yearly withdrawals are adjusted for inflation. Is that correct?

Yes, FIRECalc results are inflation adjusted. Click on "How it works" & look at the calculation example.
Numbers is hard.
