I have children who will be entering graduate/professional school and for whom we may need to cover tuition, room, and board, depending on the level of assistance provided by the schools.
Just thought you should know; you probably want to fix this.
Are Taxes in addition to "Total Spending" or are Taxes part of "Discretionary Spending", which does not seem reasonable? To me Total Spending should include Taxes.
I just noticed my birth date is wrong on the "Family Information" screen, and I'm unable to correct it. How can I fix that?
Two years ago, on my 66th birthday, I filed for social security benefits and immediately suspended payments until I reach 70. On the same day my wife, who is two years older, filed to receive spousal benefits.
I'm new to the program, and I'm trying to understand how the Regular Asset Income column is calculated in the Total Income Report.
I'm 58 and plan to retire at age 62. Whenever I set age in ESPlanner for collecting Social security to 62, then resulting report shows a smooth discretionary spending amount for the rest of my lifespan .
What index is being used for the asset Large Cap Stocks? Is there a list of the indexes used for the assets that come with Esplanner?
