Hi Ray,

Do people actually do this? Do a 10-year liquidation (or "income distribution")? Why?
Sure. Some folks have other income ladder rungs maturing at various times.

What I'm looking to do is make sure our comparison *model* works, regardless of the particular period (and thereby sequence of data.)

I don't see any particular reason to go further, to be more exact. One is TWICE as good as the other -- and that's in a time-period with 2 large bear markets. What more would you want to know?
How it performs in other market periods & sequences. Besides, we still haven't levelled the comparison. Once we're solid I'll increase the drawdown tolerance on the IUL & turn up the reward potential to match your constraints.
