The Power Of Zero


  • In 2013 MorningStar published a study of their finding on low yields and safe withdrawal rates for retirement plans. The authors of the study were notable and accomplished PhD’s with advanced degrees in economics and finance. They concluded that our ability to avoid running out of money in retirement was based on taking no more than 2.8% a year from our accounts. Now just think about that: 2.8%. On $100,000 account for our retiree, that would be $2800 – quite a difference from the $3649 the IRS is requiring to be taken out. In fact restore 30% more than the MorningStar’s expert consider safe if the goal is to be highly certain you won’t run out of money in retirement.
