Early days, but so far we have 1 in the 40-60% bracket and 3 in the 60-80%. I confess to some surprise as I thought more of us were asset-heavy. I guess we also tend to be high on the SS income scale from good-paying jobs, and maybe more of us have pensions than I'm aware of. Or perhaps many of us realize less than 4% of assets as income.

According to my projections, we'll be similar to what you experienced. Lower percentage in the early years with it going up as SS and pensions kick in. Overall, we'll average >80% going out 35 years. In fact, some years we'll be >100% assuming my projections of expenses holds up.
