It seems to me that you are paying the financial advisor a lot of money to give you advice that at least some people here think is too risky.

thanks pb. I just ran the Fidelity Planner. I assumed the "Comfortable with mostly
lower risk investments" which was a 3 out of 10 on the risk line. I wish it told me what % of return that is, I couldn't find it, but it tells me i could spend about $110k/year.

you could be right jc. He does run a lot of scenarios for me, but maybe not enough to justify $5k/yr in fees. On the other hand, my investment track record is crap and so he's saving me from myself somewhat

There is $5K potentially you can cut off your run rate. Over 50 years that is $250K. Fidelity has CFPs that did a retirement plan for us for free.
