She's 80?

With $22,000/year Social Security income?

And she has $800,000 or more?

Ye gods! Who cares whether she takes 4 percent or 8 percent a year? 4 percent of $800,000 is $32,000/year on top of the SS income. She MUST have some deductibles, but even with the standard deductions, she should have NO worries!

Unless she spends like a drunken sailor -- or has leeches for relatives and/or so-called "advisors" and friends (that happens!) -- she should stop worrying. Totally.

Unbelievable. We all should have such "worries".
