Firecalc Question

I have a question about using the Firecalc calculator.

If I'm receiving, say, 10K of income from a source wholly outside of my portfolio (not a pension) for the first, say, 10 years of my retirement and then this income stops entirely after the first 10 years, how do i enter this into the Firecalc calculator?

I should be able to increase my SWR spending somewhat from this, but I can't figure out how to use the calculator to find out how much of an increase it would amount to (it's not much, I know).

Thanks for your help with this.

One possible way to do it would be to use the pension tab, enter a pension of 10,000, then enter a second pension of -10,000 starting ten years later.

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Once you make a donation to FC (see the site) you have the option of doing manual spending changes, and you can accomplish what you want that way, too.
