Can FIRECalc (or something else) do this?

Retirement distribution plans calls for me to start withdrawing $X from my 401K in year 2030.

The plans assumes I will continue to draw that amount for 24 years thereafter.

It has $Y in it now.

Can FIRECalc or some other tool help me predict the likelihood of this plan succeeding?

Disregard, I figured it out.

Just put a future dated retirement date.
Current value of 401K in first tab and then put in total number of years (now until death) to run the simulation.

Works like a charm.
