But in reality, any reset to increase the withdrawal amounts MUST, at least to a small degree, reduce the success rate. Sure, maybe it goes from 99.8% to 99.7% (keeping in mind it's NEVER "truly" 100%), and maybe it's still relatively "safe"...but never as safe as smaller withdrawals. Yes, it would be smaller than a recalculated success rate for the original plan. That's because if you recalculated, you'd be starting with a higher balance than the original plan. But that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about the success rate of the new plan, based on the new balance, compared to the old plan, with the old balance.joe
