Drawing down accumulated assets during retirement

To think of a time when we are not actively working for a paycheck, here is an article from @Advisor_One that speaks to retiring in a yield-free world. Frightening thought?

Some questions as you review this:

1) Do you know your ideal or potential retirement date?

2) Would the often quoted 4% drawdown rate (from your investments) be sufficient to sustain your desired standard of living?

3) Have you set aside (or at least thought of, or are planning on setting aside) funds that will be available for those inevitably unforeseen contingencies?
