Have a question
How do you account for a fixed annuity starting and then stopping in 5 years?
Have enjoyed being a reader of theforum

What I might try is adding "pension income" in the year your annuity starts under the "other income/spending" tab. Uncheck the "inflation adjusted?" check mark. Then add in an "offchart spending" item in an equal amount starting 5 years later. Again, uncheck the inflation adjustment.

Others may have a more elegant solution, but I think this will work for what you want.
