You have put your money in a checking account and will receive an income which will vary as interest rates vary. The next day interest rates move to 5% and so your income is reduced from £10k per year to £5k per year.
Context – You have retired and operate on a very strict budget.
With the additional £10k per year you can just about afford to maintain your current lifestyle.
Now you only have £5k per year to supplement your pension you are going to have to make some severe cutbacks.
You really should have managed your risk better.
