Not Bad, But Missing Some Important Features
Just entered all pertinent data in the app and noticed a couple of areas that it won’t help with. This app provides a very good snapshot of income at a given time; however, it doesn’t provide a means to understand how long a certain income can be sustained. It would be great to see the other income sources (can be included in snapshot analysis via paid upgrade) reduced over time, even if just from simple growth and withdrawal algorithms. Also would be nice to see a few other improvements. List of possibilities include: years AND months for when a certain income starts, monthly income in addition to yearly income, and income shown per tax year vice age only. These should allow for a better planning tool vice a snapshot in time. BTW the app does a GREAT job of estimating FERS annuity income and that is appreciated.

Recommendation to Developer
The application works flawless and it is a great tool for planning your retirement as a federal employee. I would like to recommend one change however. I think you should modify the TSP calculation to allow a rate of return that can be modified during retirement. So, have one rate of return during employment and then a second option to adjust it during retirement. Many employees tend to invest more aggressively while employed and then may make more conservative moves in their tsp during retirement. For instance, it would be nice to forecast a 8% return while employed and then a hypothetical 3% during retirement years. It would provide a more accurate prediction at withdrawing from the TSP during retirement.
This is the only app out there that I've found that accurately gives you a snap shot of your retirement earnings growth (from several sources), SS start date and growth, annuity start date and growth, plus you can add a spouse SS start and growth, and puts it all into a great visual graphic. I purchased the upgrade which was a no brainer!! I love to play around with (run scenarios) of how my retirement date impacts my future nest egg. I'm trying to optimize so I can retire as early as possible and this app helps.
