No, I think you are good for more. Nothing wrong with a little lag.

I guess it depends on what the sources of income are. I suspect that many ER folks have just one source of income early in their ER - saved/invested money. Later they may get a pension or may not. And most of us will get SS, but that amount can vary greatly depending upon employment and earning history. So, one person's answer is probably only good for that person. It is nice to get ideas from others, but ultimately, each of us must his his own decision and be ready to live with it. Or change it if that is possible.

We had planned to tap the principal in DW TSP account first then draw from her ROTH. Dancing around the tax rates though so we might draw a small amount from her ROTH first to allow me to convert my TSP to a ROTH IRA over the next 5 years or so.
