The 3 funds are a fine start, but you need to decide how to allocate among them. If you used the 110-age notion, that would leave only 40% to divide among the equity funds. I'm 77 and use a 60/40 allocation, but I plan the funds more as a legacy for scholarships and open space than living expenses.
