US stocks led to the schline in another winning know how we get this after the Federal Reserve gave a major forecast and expected for interest rate increases. Standard poors 500 index slipped three Friday. Dow Jones industry is now industrials fell nineteen NASDAQ rose a fraction. Jeff Jones president of the embattled right. Healing company Bloomberg has resigned just six months after taking the job. While Hoover confirmed Jones resignation and in a brief statement published in the best. In stay on getting. That's a ticket Madonna Nancy AMP the record cannot live comfortably on less than a million dollars in retirement. I don't know we're gonna find out canyon you know it's finally gotten to that Steve yeah you gotta be a millionaire to retire comfortably well at least that's what those. You know it's one of those rules of thumbs cost around. When you punched numbers into one of those on mine retirement income calculators. And here's the math. Let's let's say you need you'll trigger your Social Security benefit this year at full retirement age which lets say your age 66. And one month. Now that's for somebody born in 1951. If you made 70000 bucks an incoming year you know last year. You will receive about 17100. Bucks per month as per the Social Security calculator on its SA dot gov. That translates to about 20000. Plus. Yeah counterpart. Itself. Million box to maintain your current lifestyle. The 4%. Withdrawal rule of thumb you know I think about the rule of frank could allow for that equivalent of about 40000 dollars in income per year for the rest of your life. The 4% rate is based upon. Market history and it assumed it shall never touched principal and you'll continue to grow that base that the 4% will yield enough to keep up with inflation. So you use it you know you're used to living on salary of seventy K. But without work expenses like funding your 401K every month. Now you have 20000. From your Social Security. And about 40000 from your nest day you'll live on about 60000 dollars before taxes without depleting your nest day. And that's where the million dollar thing is a bit deceptive to me. The 4% rule and DD a million bucks to retire concept means you're gonna. Leave that inflation adjusted million as a legacy for your heirs. That they will inherit it well the obvious question it to me is what's wrong with using some of that million bucks yourself. Now unfortunately we never know what we're gonna die so we don't know. You know will win if we're gonna deplete our nest day did you know if we lived to be 101 years old however. If you take eight non inflation adjusted 40000 dollars every year for one million box. That amount will last year 25 years to nine years old. If you factory and even a modest 2% average after tax per year return on them money you could easily extend that nest take another ten years bottom line. Having a million boxes a great start our retirement if you're conditions are similar to the aforementioned case study. But with a solid financial plan and prudent use of your principal you may be able to enjoy it more. With much less and of course if you have any questions you give me call number 634.
