But how much can you afford to withdraw from your retirement accounts each month?
And, what if the market crashes... 10%... 20%... 30% or more? Can you just STOP taking withdrawals?
If the market dropped 25%, you would need a 34% return just to get back to EVEN...!
A 30% drop? You would need a 44% return to just break even..!
And a 50% drop...? You need a 100% return just to get your account balance back to it's beginning value.
