And in FireCalc they allow use of something called a "Long interest rate". I can't find that explained anywhere. At least not by using that title. The description in Firecalc seems to imply it's a generalized MMF or bank saving account rate. A "return on cash" more or less which the other calculator just throws in the towel on.

The "long interest rate" usually refers to the yieled on 30-year Treasury bonds.

The original REHP Excel spreadsheet on which FIRECalc is based used 3 to 6 month commercial paper as the fixed income data series. The yield on that should approximate what you'd get on a Money Market Fund.
