Today’s episode features Bill Bengen, creator of the 4% rule.
The 4% rule is arguably the most famous and influential research of the financial independence movement.
The rule essentially says that you can safely withdraw 4% of your invested nest egg without ever completely depleting that nest egg. That means for every $100k you have invested, that you can spend $4k per year indefinitely.
Bill has spent decades and countless hours tweaking these calculations and looking for any weakness in its logic.
In this episode, we’ll hear Bill’s latest updates and what he now thinks about the 4% rule all these years later.
Now take some time and see if Bill still believes the 4% rule is a safe path to early retirement.
