Does FireCalc calculate future balances if not retired?

Example: If I enter a portfolio balance of $1MM (and an AA in the Your Portfolio tab) and I indicate I plan to retire in 5 years, does FireCalc calculate what your portfolio balance might be in 5 years and use that figure in its success calculations?

Hope that makes sense.

Yes, it does exactly as you ask.

You can see this by doing two runs of FIRECalc for a 30 year retirement, one at the default numbers and a second after going to the "Not Retired?" tab and indicating you will retire five years later (2022). The first result will show a success rate of 94.9% and delaying five years will result in 100%
