And I'm trying now to figure out exactly what the problem is? ? He seems to have a formula for consistently beating the market and can time the market tov avoid down turns. I'd think figuring out if they could retire would be simple?

Yeah, he seems to think he knows-it-all so I'm not sure how we can help him.

Oops, maybe he doesn't know-it-all after all... he thought ACA capped at 250% FPL when it is really 400% FPL.

Quick Reference For Assistance Program Thresholds
Each assistance program may use different percentages of the Federal poverty level as thresholds. here is a quick overview of which programs use what.

100% = Baseline Eligibility for Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) funded Programs

125% = Maximum Eligibility for Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) funded Programs

138% = Maximum Eligibility for Medicaid and CHIP in states that expanded Medicaid

150% = Maximum Eligibility for United Way Rent and Utility Assistance programs, and the Employee Profit Sharing Plan (EPSP) and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) programs.

100% – 250% = Eligibility for cost sharing reduction subsidies on Silver plans bought on the Marketplace. (see 2015 guidelines further down the page).

100% – 400% = Eligibility for Premium tax credits on Health Insurance Marketplace plans (see 2015 guidelines further down the page).

To OP,
Based on your intro, low expenses, and your knowledge about ins and outs of ACA and stock market, you're more than set to retire now. If something doesn't work out over the next few years, SS will kick in and cover the shortage.

You've got my blessing
