I played with Financial Engines for several years, I even paid a subscription when they first started. I prefer other free retirement readiness tools such as the one from Personal Capital, Fidelity (free after regostration), and other from the web such as firecalc, cfiresim and i-orp.

What has been your experience with Personal Capital? Have you spoken to an advisor?

No. I have not spoken to an advisor. I only use it to track my investments that I entered manually, as I don't not trust its system in protecting my passwords. (I also adjusted the numbers proportionally.)

I get access to this from work. They recently changed their name to Edelman Financial Engines.
