We are two women who between us have about $1 mil invested with virtually no debt. We are both 55


Unless you are related in some way, I would make my first stop an attorney to make sure you each will always have access to the money.

Then compare that to the 40K as the safe withdrawal rate from the million along with any other possible income. Social security ? pension ? savings ?
