? rollover of 403b to IRA at retirement.

We have most of our tax deferred funds with TIAA-CREF. Spouse just retired. I am working 1/2 time for several more years. She is now 59 1/2 and I will be 59 1/2 in November.

Although TIAA-CREF is very good, the expense rations for Index Funds are somewhat less at Vanguard and Vanguard offers many more long term investment options.
I think I understand that all tax deferrred money could be rolled into Vanguard with no tax consequences until I withdraw it. Vanguard would charge no fees to roll over the money as I understand it. Is this correct?

If we determine that we want $3000.00/month for living expenses, and I want to do a 4 year CD ladder, what is the best way to take the money out of tax exempt funds?

I have learned so much from this board, but I am now making the big shift to drawing out money and want to make sure I am drawing it out the right way...

Thanks to you all.

Yep, call vanguard, they send you a few forms, you fill them out and mail them back, they do all the work. Sometimes it takes a while for your old company to let go of the money though...
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
