Income Volatility Graph
Home Up


This graph shows the number of years (for each of the 54 different 30 year retirement scenarios) that you would have encountered an income drop of greater than 10% of your target income. The starting conditions were a fixed annuity of $22,000/year, an inflation adjusted income goal of $44,000/year,  and a starting portfolio value of $716,700 (which is 22,000 x 9.85 + 22,000/.044). The withdrawal methodology was described in the Combining It All section.
