Retirement Income Simulator

When we designed the Retirement Income Simulator, we decided to use sliders for the majority of our inputs. The upside of this was that it made entering details easy on a wide range of devices with little margin for error. The downside, however, is that is often not possible to enter exact information using the sliders, and users are forced to use the nearest possible value on the slider.

Our most recent update adds a new method of input to the Retirement Income Simulator. By clicking or tapping on the amount displayed above a slider, users can now enter their exact details in a text box.

This allows the Retirement Income Simulator to generate projections that are much more relevant to users' exact conditions. In addition, users accessing the secure version of the Simulator will now find that it is pre-populated with their exact salary and super balance instead of rounded amounts.
