There are many uncertainties that make calculating retirement spending an educated guess at best – many of which we have covered in previous episodes. You want the flexibility to spend as much as you need in retirement, while also feeling secure enough in your funds that you know you won’t run out of money halfway through your golden years. So, in this episode, I am going to be explaining dynamic withdrawal strategies which are designed to change annual retirement distributions based on actual market performance, to prevent you from under or overspending.

Listen in as I share how using dynamic withdrawal strategies can actually help you take out a larger amount of money at the beginning and several ways to implement a dynamic withdrawal strategy into your retirement plan. You will learn what the Guyton-Klinger Rule is, how to make adjustments with inflation and how to increase your probability of success.
