The table you came up with to show RMD withdrawal rates from IRAs and how an IRA behaves when compounding at 6%, while at the same time supporting minimum distributions, is interesting and useful. I note that 15 years out the IRA is still larger than it is at the start of distributions at age 70.

Of course we are positing a 6% return during drawdown.

Yes, I thought it was interesting as well. Reading about all those wringing their hands over RMDs makes me wonder how many people have actually looked at the RMD tables. For example, you don't have to take out more than 6% until age 83.

I've often said that if RMDs force me into paying higher taxes than I'm deferring now, I'll be very lucky indeed :)
