Retirement Investing: Dave Ramsey's 8% Withdrawal Rate

In this episode, Nick Hopwood, CFP® and Jim Pilat, CFP® of Peak Wealth Management discuss  Dave Ramsey's concept of an 8% withdrawal rate in retirement.

The personal finance expert recently landed in hot water after an on-air rant about the popular 4% rule for retirement withdrawals.
