Now that we've polled methodologies, how does this actually translate in terms of percentages??

Re: What's Your Withdrawal Percentage

Because cash flows may be uneven this poll might be difficult to interpret. For instance, in my case we will get Social Security in about 4 to 8 years. FireCalc allows for this scenario and so our WR will be higher then someone currently taking SS.
