Smart-ass here. Did you check the inter-galactic bit bucket? Seriously, since others have provided the location, I'll just add it's one sweet tool. I've modeled my retirement six ways to Sunday - - - and determined that I can exit in a few months and retire at 60. Good luck!

Firecalc is very good.

iOrp is good.
******** is good.
Flexible retirement planner is good.
ESPlanner can be helpful
Retiree Portfolio Model is good.
Etc. Etc.

I would not base my planning on just one. Play around and get a feel for their different methodologies/strengths/weaknesses. Can I Retire Yet? - Save More - Invest Smarter - Retire Sooner has done a lot of work on comparing calculators over the years, including several comparison posts.

Something as critical as RE, you need to have second, third, fourth and fifth opinions! But FireCals remains my favorite
