Sustainable withdrawals vs. retirement duration

Document Type


Publication Date



The Bogleheads Forum is a great resource for investors. In a recent discussion thread, a participant that goes by the username “umfundi” proposed/requested a new way to illustrate the results about sustainable withdrawal rates in retirement. I thought it seemed like an interesting way to express things, and since I have the resources to perform the necessary calculations, it seemed like a pretty good topic for a column.
