Critique my Fire2018 investment plan/Obamacare plan
« on: January 02, 2018, 05:17:09 PM »
im age 47, single, no kids.
house paid off.

ira/Roth = $550k (Target 2035 fund)
after tax $ = $250k ($125k Bank acct, 125k heathcare fund)

expenses = $20k/yr
$250k/20k = 12.5yrs

so I have enough after tax $ to last me to age 59 1/2 where I can withdraw from my ira without penalty.
from age 48 to 58, convert $xxx IRA to roth.

$xxx = minimum amount income needed to get on Obamacare silver plan with max subsidies.
as I understand it, income under that amount forces me into Medicaid, which I don't want.
im assuming Obamacare is superior to Medicaid.

Comments/suggestions?
