Yo, JeanDavid.

<<My calculations were strictly those of the Quicken retirement calculator, which looks more reasonable than many I have found on the Internet. For the numbers I put in, you are *guaranteed to run out of money* at age 100. I said she had to promise to die at that age. This is one of the risks one takes.>>

It's an excellent approach for those to whom leaving an estate to heirs is secondary. It's also my preferred planning tool provided one takes a conservative outlook by using a longer than average life span. In that regard, 100 is a good, sound age.
