In a previous message I wrote that you would only need
to earn <>9.051%/year (assuming 4% average annual 
inflation and w/d $50,000 in todays dollars/year) in 
order to live on your $1,000,000 until age 85.  I did 
another calculation that looks even better!!  You only
need to make <>9.107%/year (assuming the same 
variables above) and you will still have $1,000,000 
left at 85 years old. Therefore, at 9.107%/year, the $1,000,000 will last forever.

Here's the schedule:

Withdrawal Schedule
If you retire in 0 years:
Amount Needed at Retirement = $ 1,000,003.16
Annual Interest Rate = 9.107% 
Annual Inflation Rate = 4% 
Number of Retirement Years = 55
Amount Withdrawn per Year = 50,000.00 (in todays dollars)
$1,000,000.00 will be left in your account.
