S & O 500 and dividends


If I have a portfolio of 100% S&P 500 and I'm retired and I'm withdrawing money from my portfolio, does FireCALC apply the dividends from the S&P 500 first before reducing the holdings. Or are S&P 500 dividends ignored?

Thanks - FireCALC is just about the best app I've come across on the web.

Dividends are added back to the portfolio.

Glad it has been helpful!

Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
