the 80 year old has a past accumulation of $1M...
Let's assume X amount of this net worth is *just enough* to throw sufficient yield to cover all living expenses at 80 years old.

Out of that $1M, how much is suitable to put into the S&P500?


If you believe Bengen, Bogel, Plau, innumerable others, and hundreds of papers and studies by the likes of Credit Suisse, Fidelity, Vanguard, etc.: 60%.
The other 40% would be in bonds.

This is not hard.
