FireCalc Pension Value Pre-Tax?

I looked for the answer to this before posting but couldn’t find it. When entering the pension value the FireCalc doesn’t indicate whether the amount should be “gross” or “net of taxes.”

Any guidance would be appreciated.

FIRECalc ignores taxes. I suggest entering your gross pension amount and include whatever taxes you will pay on it (and other income) as one of your expense items in your spending.
