As long as you understand that you have a 10% chance (based on historical calculations) of running out of money, there's no problem with deciding to accept that risk.

Thanks so much for the quick response! Right now it is coming up with 95% and I am balancing that against the chances that I will in fact live another 50 years after I retire. Family history vs. medical advances, I figure my chances of making it a whole 50 years past my retirement age are probably not much higher than 95% at best anyway.

Thanks again
