Starting portfolio value in FIRECalc?
My company offers the choice of a lump sum buyout or a (non-COLA) pension. I'm quite sure I won't take the buyout, but was curious what values FIRECalc would give if I did. It made me question something...
My question: to determine the FIRECalc portfolio value, I assumed (in this instance) I should combine the lump sum, my 401k value, and the sum of my other holdings (not including a modest cash account or home equity). Was I correct in putting in my 401k value, realizing it will be taxed uniquely?
Thanks in advance!
