$0 withdrawals with Guyton-Klinger

Postby jtrogdon » Thu Oct 15, 2015 1:10 am

Just ran a scenario with constant, inflation-adjusted withdrawals and then the same scenario with Guyton-Klinger. The Guyton-Klinger results said I was pulling $0 withdrawals in all years of the sim. I can provide inputs if that helps.

Can you save your simulation and give me the ID of it? (After you save it, the ID will be next to the name of the sim in the "Load Saved Sim" dropdown menu)

I can't seem to recreate the issue.

I've noticed this error, too, but it is infrequent. I'll try to save SIM next time it happens. But more on the error--spending isn't precisely zero each year it is actually "$0.25,000.00" each year (for $25k) which graphs as zero and rounds to zero.

Check sim 667 (gkFail). I noticed a similar error with similar inputs on the 'old' site, too, FYI. Messing around a bit more, I can get it to error/not error by changing the start year to 2016/2015 (error with 2016 start). Not sure if my notes will be helpful or goose-chases.

Also check sim 1861 for the $0 spending using the Guyton-Klinger model. Retiring in 2017 does the trick for me every time.

Thanks so much for this tool--it's an excellent resource!
