First of all I am an newbie to this board. I may be forced into an early retirement next year, though it's not what I want it may come to pass anyway. I given some look at retirement calcuators and how much could be withdrawn for life. It seems that 3 to 4% is what's recommended. My question is, if stocks can reasonably be expected to appreciate 10% per year and inflation is roughly 3% or less why couldn't I withdraw say 7.5% per year and still have some appreciation and a margin of safety? Any comments will be greatly appreciated.Gary
