Our allocation is based on running several projections (e.g., Firecalc, i-orp and with Vanguard planners) and what appears to be bestr SWR for our situation (age, other income, etc).

Fyi, currently retired since 2000 and allocation 45/55. Don't include cash needed for next couple of years. Incidentally, actual allocation is sorta bucketized in stock indices, Wellesley and bonds, 35/30/35.

I'm 55 and have a target AA of 70% fixed, 30% equity to reduce volatility of the overall portfolio. I don't plan to change it as I age, at least not until age 70 or so.

This is a good one! I'm sure someone will come up with a study that supports it.
