JLC makes a good point about life expectancy.
For example, with a husband and wife both age 70, there is at least 10% chance one of them will live another 30 years to age 100 and more than a 25% chance one will live to age 95.
I'd plan for a 30-year pay out period with a 60% stock/40% fixed income allocation. Here's one using Vanguard and Bridgeway funds.
