What am I missing here? Retirement has been sweet these 26 years except for the deaths of people I loved and my own deteriorating health.
Responding to what you said: a quarter of my retirement income is dividends on stocks, mostly index funds, in a taxable account. Another quarter is my corporate pension and social security, together. The final half is mandatory minimal withdrawals from my IRA. IRS requires those withdrawals but not does not require spending that money. I have chosen to spend it. Not interested if the financial independence ratio is more than the norm being the richest man in the graveyard.

Checked it out and it answered some of the questions. I also believe that a lot is in keeping daily expenses in check leaving the rest of passive cash flow for all the extras.
