I am screwing something up
I see that Firecalc has an input that says
"Current Value of your retirement portfolio"
which I take to mean what the value is today, not the value I expect it to be when I retire 8 years from now.
If that is true, how do I enter my yearly contributions to the retirement portfolio that I will make before I retire? I don't think I should add this money as a one time lump sum but I am not sure how else to get that data into Firecalc so that it correctly shows the growth of my portfolio not only based on the market returns but also based on yearly contributions for the next 8 years.
Any help would be appreciated.
