In the Cash Flow Forecast Detailed Data Table, there is a column of data called "Retirement Objective Net". From what I can see it includes the Post retirement expenses that I setup along with special expenses according to the parameters on the "retirement income target" tab.
However I can't seem to reconcile the data in that column against the budget, it is always higher. Can you tell me what data is included in the (net) retirement income objective column?
The expenses you entered are in "today's dollars". So if it's payable in. say, 10 years, the annual expenses are increased by the rate of inflation applicable during that period. This is to ensure that your assets can pay for the expenses when they are incurred in the future. Look in the Help file, under Forecast Menu | Retirement Income Target | Adjustments to Retirement Income. There is more information and an example about the impact of inflation.
