I would rather skipped calculators like Vanguard's and just look at my family tree. Since many live into their 90s and some into their 100s, I'm not planning on exhausting my assets in my 80s. If I lose the genetic lottery, my descendents will get a going away gift.
i consider both ..and my own health
family tree says males rarely make 70, females get into their 80s
.. but i've had two almost's since 50 ..
ie, i use the Tables to give me a bit of optimism <g>
