Excellent recent Kitces blog post on income generation
There have been recent posts on TIPS ladders and a 50/50 Wellesley/Wellington portfolio to produce retirement income. There are lots of tools in the retirement income toolkit and here is a good post from Kitces that covers quite a few of them and I think honestly explains their pros and cons. Don't be put off by the title, the post it's not just about annuities.............it actually ends up being more of a critic of the use of bonds in a portfolio so the people interested in TIPS ladders and balanced funds for retirement income might be interested.
