Does it really matter how much money he uses or where it comes from ? Everyone has to make choices about how to live and when to retire. Some want to retire enough to live on less. Others are willing to work longer to have more to use in retirement. There's also that risk tolerance thing out there.

I don't care where he got his money. I was only correcting the misconception.

I do care where my money comes from. Each additional source of income such as SS, pensions, rental income or anything else will reduce my withdrawal rate on my retirement accounts or if I keep the withdrawal rate the same, I'll have more fun money to use.
