We are planning to retire in about two years at age 54. We have no heirs to leave anything to, so would prefer to spend as much as possible while we can. Since we can't predict the time of our demise, we can at least plan for our portfolio to last longer than we can possibly last. With that in mind, is there any way to calculate a safe withdrawl rate that will bring our portfolio to zero at, say, age 120?

I know we will leave some behind if we do that, but at least we won't leave the whole thing.
