or the OP, I'd say that with every 1% of AWR (annual withdrawal rate) you should have 10% in fixed income.

I know I could have more in equities and less in fixed income (since my w/d rate right now is probably < 1%.) I've thought about that a lot but have concluded that my "guaranteed" income streams mean I can be more aggressive if I want to. But I don't have to in order to live a happy life style. So I guess I'm opting for the more conservative route.
