What assumptions are made on life expectancy for my retirement goal?

We set defaults for life expectancy conservatively at the 90th percentile of US life expectancies: 92 for men and 95 for women. You can modify these defaults in the setup questionnaire or in the Savings and Spending tab of the dashboard.
