How do I use the Insights Library to learn more about my plan?
PlannerPlus is a forward looking Projection Engine. For this reason all calculations begin in the next month, and the current year contains a number of estimates.
Lifetime Income Projection Chart
Work, Social Security, Annuity, Pension, RMDs and Other (for more detail on other income please see the Estimated Income, Drawdowns, and Debt chart)
Expenses and Taxes
The Planner automatically computes taxes based upon income and single or married filing jointly filing status. The taxes represented in this chart are the prior year’s estimated tax liability. You may view discrete expense and tax information for the year in the Insights > Income and Expenses > Estimated Expenses Chart.
Savings drawdowns are calculated as the remaining income needed to cover expenses, after accounting for the other income streams. The Planner automatically models a traditional withdrawal strategy.
If you don't have enough savings, you will instead display a deficit.

One Time Expenses
Shortfalls represent drawdowns which fund your expenses. A shortfall may not be a net savings drawdown for the year, as the account may be replenished later in the year. The Planner automatically models a traditional withdrawal strategy.
This is due to excess income which occurs anytime your monthly income from ALL sources – including Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) – is higher than what you have specified for your total monthly expenses. Set the amount of excess income you save in My Plan > Money Flows > Excess Income
Expenses that your income and savings drawdowns fund
Expenses that are not funded by your income or savings and result in a deficit
