My current yearly expenses are $77,000, with inflation of 3%, what will my expenses be in 28 years when I retire? Thank you.

    The math — 1.03 ^ 28 = 2.29 leads to a touch over $176,000 for your living expenses 28 years from now. With a ton of implied assumptions!

    In Lifetime Planner, you can view the plan in future dollars by clicking on the gear icon>Show amounts in future value. You can view year to year detail (income, expense, portfolio/account value) by clicking on any bar (any year) in the "Plan Results" graph, which brings up the summary table for that year.
