Understanding Current Year Recommendations
The table below gives the 2010 recommendations from my retired mother-in-law's situation and I'm trying to make sense of the negative numbers in the "Current Amount" column. It would appear the program thinks she is not spending any money on current consumption (the negative $42K) while withdrawing approximately only $7,000 from current assets (would that that were the case!) Am I reading it correctly? And why would it think that? More importantly, what do I need to change in the inputs to make it more realistic?
