The Originator of the 4% Retirement Rule Thinks It's Off the Mark. He Says  It Now Could Be Up to 4.5%. | Barron's
September 29th 
This week's program will be presented by our own William "Bill" Bengen.  Bill is known as the "Father of the 4% Rule" and will be discussing how it applies to retirement planning.  The 4% Rule is a practical rule of thumb that may be used by retirees to decide how much they should withdraw from their retirement funds each year. He is frequently quoted in major financial publications and has detailed his research in a book, “Conserving Client Portfolios.”   Bill is also the recipient of NAPFA’s (National Association of Personal Financial Advisors) Robert J. Underwood Distinguished Service Award.

The fund raising season for The Ride to End Polio, which will be held Saturday November 19, 2022.  John Oszust has an aggressive goal to have EVERY member participate in some way.  Of course any member is eligible to ride in the official El Tour de Tucson,, and this year we will have a a route at SaddleBrooke and one at SaddleBrooke Ranch to fundraise for the cause.  There is also an option to ride a stationary bike for the cause.

At our meeting on September 29, 2022, we are asking members who have a Rotary Jersey to wear or bring it so we can get a picture for our fundraising page
