Several questions from first-time user
I don't understand the first page of recommendations. What does it mean when consumption is (49,414)? What does it mean when recommended amount of savings is (99,276)? The (s seem to imply negative figures, implying I should save negative $99,276.
How should I account for a son or daughter older than 19 or parent living with us?
The tool makes it very hard to compare on scenario with another. It might be easy if the tool provides a single consumption level of living standard per adult, but my analysis has five. How should I decide which scenario is better?
Is there a way to directly compare several scenarios in a single report?
Does the tool do any optimization at all for me such as 401k vs. Roth 401k, Social Security at 62 vs. 70, withdrawing funds from IRA to buy an annuity?
Thanks for your help
