ResNullius asks,I'm curious whether the survival rates for the straight 4% withdrawal are better or worse than the inflation adjusted method.It would be safer than the inflation-adjusted method since you'd be taking out less money during those periods of big stock market declines like 1929-1933, and periods of high inflation like the late 1970's- early 1980's. Of course, your annual withdrawal would fluctuate quite a bit, so the "straight 4%" would only work for someone with a lot of fat in their retirement budget that could be trimmed in the lean years.intercst
