Expected Annual Income Available During Retirement:

The blue bars are the same as the bars in the "simple" calculator on the intro page. The shorter green bars are your true expected balance over time. "Expected" here really means "median": you have a 50/50 chance of doing better than the green bars, and a 50/50 chance of doing worse. The number above the chart shows what your expected annual income will be during retirement; naturally, it's less than the amount predicted by the earlier "simple" calculator.
