SWR Question

I am not good at figuring. How long will $300,000. last at the SWR and how much can be taken as income per year?

This is so confusing.

Re: SWR Question

That depends!

Click on the link above "go to firecalc". Put in how much you NEED each year, the 300k, how many years you think you'll need it for, and below that how much you plan to put into stocks and bonds.

It'll tell you how long the money will last at that rate of withdrawal.

Just as a jumpstarter though, $14k a year for 30 years if the money is invested 60% in stocks and 40% in treasury protected bonds is 100% safe from a historical perspective.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
