JLC makes a good point about life expectancy.

http://retireearlyhomepage.com/lesafe.html

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.

thank you very much for the example portfolio.
are there any etfs I could in place of the mutual funds VFSUX,VAIPX, and BRSIX?






$200,000 VFSUX Vanguard Short-Term Bond Admiral Shares 0.10% $200
$200,000 VAIPX Vanguard Inflation-Protected Securities Fund-Admiral Shares 0.11% $220
