I'm new to the board and this question may have been answered,but searching did not help.If you are retired and your net worth is invested in conservative investments with 50% in stocks 40% in bonds and 10% in cash,what percentage can you withdraw yearly so your equity is not depleted.

Take a look at the Retire Early discussion board here on the Fool. There are a lot of discussions about this.

The board moderator intercst has a document over in the Soapbox section that goes into this in great detail.

Basically, the percentage is 3-4%.
