Hi, I'm back.

Additional Inputs:

Cashflow Type: Social Security

Start Year: ?
End Year: ?
Annual Amount: I didn't know what to enter, since it goes up every year.
Taxable Percent: ?

The only other Cashflow Type which might apply to me is "Other Expenses". Can I leave out expenses for this study?

Annual Retirement Income: I didn't know what to enter here.

Retirement Income Start Age: I didn't know what to enter here.

Annual Retirement Spending: I didn't know what to enter here. I currently live with family so I only spend $15K. That will change later. I guess we should use the smallest amount one can live on in the US. 30K in today's dollars?

Spending Policy: I didn't know what to enter here.

When I fill in some numbers and then hit Run Simulation and then hit, Detailed Summary, because I have a Mac I do not see any heading in the nine white boxes on top. Can someone tell me from left to right, what the headings are?

There. I think that's all the entries.

Many Thanks.
