Safe and how much
Turning 60 (wife 55) and thinking about the ER, but it seems a scary. Keep hearing or maybe as it approaches noticing every negative comment about the economy. i.e. cutting social security, bear market ahead, etc.
I am assuming that if they cut Social Security it won't be by more than 25%, is this a reasonable assumption ?
Investments: 600K invested
Dodge & Cox balanced 25K
Oakmark Eqty Income 25K
T Rowe Capital Appreciation 50K
Insurance Company Stable Value 330K
I Bonds purchased 5 yrs ago 100K
The Stable Value and I bonds will produce a steady stream minimum of 2 - 3% above inflation.
If I have a minimum of 3% over inflation on all, we would be in pretty good shape. Is this realistic, very conservative amount if we get into a stagnit or bear market conditions ?
Pension 20K, 25% of SS = 11K @62, 18k from investments.
Am I missing something that would effect the withdrawal rate.
(I won't make it over 23 years and my wife 34, probably less the more I think about this stuff.)
