when does Firecalc think I will retire?

As in, if I tell it that my retirement year is 2012 (my devout desire) does it do its calculations on the idea that I will do it on January 1, on December 31, or something else? When I retire, I'll actually be doing it for pay purposes on Aug 1 or so. Perhaps I should have read this somewhere, but I didn't see it. Thanks!

I believe FIRECalc assumes Jan 1, so you may want to use 2013 since you'll be retiring in the latter half of 2012.

Won't really matter as FIRECalc was designed as a "measure with a micrometer, mark with a grease pencil and cut with an axe" when it comes to that level of precision...

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension
