Hi Badger
Could I get on your mailing list when you get the 72t info? I am looking at using the 72t and I am 45 my wife 44. We each have a substantial amount in our 401k plans. Some of my concerns are that the money is mostly in stocks. If the market has a bad few years the portfolio could actually decrease in value and if I am locked into a fixed withdrawl I could deplete the principal before 59 1/2. The other extreme would be that I am a successful Fool and my principal continues to grow faster than my withdrawls and I end up with to large an amount at 59 1/2. My goal is to reduce the principal to an exceptable level and reinvest the funds I remove using the 72t and buy a few nice toys, take a few nice trips etc :) If one could recalc the withdrawl annually based on remaining principal, interest rate etc it would be very helpful.
Thanks
