Hi all,

Let's say I feel I can retire comfortably with an annual income of x. How do I go about figuring how much of a nest egg I will need?

I am not overly interested in preserving the sum to pass on to anyone, so I don't mind it diminishing at a safe rate. However, I want to plan on living 40 years or so after I retire.

I know I've seen something around here, but nothing came up on my search.

Thanks,

orangeblood
