Do a "foolish" search looking for "withdrawl rates" or "withdrawl percentages".

Reply: Thanks for the info but couldn't find anything after multiple searches using several different variations.

In the "Board" field below this message, put "Reire Early Home Page" and click find. Scan the last 100 messages on that board. This will lead you to excellent information about strategies that invest in stocks and pull a small fraction out of the stocks every year. I believe this is the best method to balance risks of inflation and need for income, and participate in income growth. Two problems I see.
1. This won't support anywhere near the 10% you hope for unless you accept a substantial probability of losing all the money. Neither will anything else, though.
2. Personal experience with people that grew up in the depression is that no numbers will convince them to buy stocks.
