How do I get my money back?

As you get closer to Retirement the question becomes, how do I get my money back? Should I be expecting to receive social security? When do I apply for medicare? Are there any supplemental programs I should look at for health care costs? How do I pay for long term care costs?

2 Strategies
1. “Safety First”
2. “Probability Based”

Do not rely on the 4% rule as it does not take into account market performance or longevity.

Let’s first address distribution methods.

Most clients should take out the money that is taxable to them first. These accounts include 401k, 403b, IRA, Mutual Funds.

The second option would be any Mutual Funds or Stocks you own

Lastly, I would recommend keeping your Roth IRA for last as there are no minimum distributions.
