Yet another financial adviser is unable to correctly describe the 4% rule. Worse, the financial journalist used the quote anyway:This (4% rule) has its detractors, too. Harold Evensky, chairman of Evensky & Katz, a Coral Gables, Florida, financial advisory firm, says that retirees using this retirement income strategy must deal with inconsistency.

People who had money that they needed for groceries in the market were not fine."https://www.fidelity.com/insights/retirement/4-ways-to-appro...
