5/27 Speaker: Randy Rankin

Randy became our program moderator when his guest speaker had to postpone. Randy’s subject was “Choosing a Sustainable Withdrawal Rate” to help you avoid running out of money in retirement.  He took us through a number of charts showing the options available, but the optimum number to remember is 3.8%.

Randy also provided some hand-outs that explained the formula to use when figuring your personal withdrawal rate.
