What does Wealthfront assume about my household income when I take time off to travel?

We assume you will have no income while you travel. You can, however, change this assumption and add a positive income during the travel period by editing your household income for you or your partner.

This amount can be the same as your current income or a custom amount. If you set an income while you travel, we compute your after-tax income (assuming your current U.S. tax rates).

At the end of a travel period, we assume you return to the income level before your travel (adjusted for inflation). You can modify your expected income when your return. If you’re curious about the potential impact to your career after taking time off to travel, you can adjust your income growth rate on a scale spanning very conservative to high.
