What are you seeing that indicates it is adjusting pension income for inflation even if unchecked?

I just ran it using the base numbers except $50,000 in annual spending and $10,000 in annual pension income. Checked for inflation adjustment, I got a success rate of 60%. Unchecked for inflation adjustment I got 52.2%.

Looks to me like it is working correctly.

It shows in the Investigate "spreadsheet" showing year by year results that the Pension income is increasing every year when it should be level.

The spreadsheet numbers are incorrect - FIRECalc is handling the calculation correctly but the spreadsheet info doesn't indicate the inflation adjustment has been unchecked. See here: Inflation adjusted checkbox seemingly ingnored
