"But with annual benefits at a minimum of $250,000 per year"

415 maximum = 210,000

401a17 maximum = 265,000, high 3 = 260,000

Something is awry.

I tend to look for particular speakers, rather than the topics themselves. "Retirement Adequacy" sounds like a potential snoozer, though.

Accidentally dismissed reminders in Outlook

Earlier today, I blitzed 160 reminders by hitting dismiss all. Is there any way to get them back?

Thanks for any help.

Is there a way to retrieve info from the table in the multiview? For example, if you've calculated E[X] and E[X^2], can you grab these directly or do you have to retype them?

Just to put some numbers on this, let's suppose the chance of an open frame is 1/10 and that he had 8 of them. That would be 10 choose 8, times .1 ^ 8, times .9 ^ 2 = 1/2,743,484. Pretty unlikely.

If you're funding TUC while the benefits are escalating a bit like PUC, you'll have a shortfall. Since that's being amortized, the plan will tend to be underfunded.
