This is not exactly what you asked for, but related. Once you have money, you want it to last. Worded another way, how much money do you need to retire/stop working?

I have seen dozens of opinions on the fabled "Safe Withdraw Rate" and more than a few are just plain dangerous in my view. The concept of re-entering the workforce 10 or 15 years into retirement is spooky. So let me suggest you read a dull book by the person who "invented" the 4% rule. I did not find errors - rather this is about as exciting to read as say intermediate number theory.
