For those who like to play with spreadsheets, with 4% SWR, you would want to have 25x your expenses in investments. I moved the poll towards the lower end, assuming people plan on at least slightly lowering their expenses once they FIRE. Especially if you're already saving 15% of your salary, you're certainly going to be chopping that part off once you retire :)
