Setting up a 72T, want to replace my current salary.
However I'll be into this 72T for 9 years. How much percent wise should I plan for inflation?

Welcome to 72t on the Net

I would suggest doing a good bit of reading there to help you with your decision. After a lot of reading there I elected not to re-calculate annually. My 1st check arrived in November 07 and I have 6 and a half years to go. I also have some other funds that I can tap into a bit later if need be. Good Luck!

I am 49, 2 years into my 72t. I use the annual recalc method, which results in about
a just under 3% withdrawal this year, increasing to a final draw of around 4% in
the final draw (when I turn 59.5). The 'inflation' protection is from the generally
increased balance each year.
