If your client is many years from retirement, you'll probably solve for the Initial Investment needed at the start of retirement based on desired Monthly Income and their projected pension and Social Security income. Closer to retirement, you may want to approach the problem by first solving for the possible Monthly Income based on accumulated assets and known income sources. (In this example, the planner is solving for the Investment Return required to meet the client's income goal, in preparation for designing a portfolio.)

After the client retires, monitor their progress each year using their actual investment balance, income, and rates of return. You could solve first for Income Period and, if that falls short of the life expectancy, solve for Rate of Return.
