5th Paper: A 3D retirement model based on actual ages.

How does the distribution period change each year as a retiree ages? Does this change the retirement income based on age?

This research paper incorporates both probability of the portfolio (market risk) and probability of the person (longevity risk) for retirement de-cumulation (i.e., income). A method is shown to evaluate either a "consumption-oriented" retiree, or an "inheritance/bequest-oriented" retiree.
