Just retired at 58 will soon need to manage allocation of 401k in withdrawal mode
I'm at the beach having a ball, taking a year off as a test run to retirement, living off of capital gains from the sale of my prior home and downsizing. Felt quite confident investing and building wealth while I was working, making a good income and making contributions to 401k, less confident about managing it once I start making withdrawals from 401k, especially with current ZIRP? 58 years old, just over $1M in retirement plans and about $55k yearly expenses (including a small mortgage fixed 3.65%), in good health with a retiree health plan until I go on medicare but no pension. Because I have no pension would like to try to hold of on SS until age 70, perhaps file on my ex's at full retirement age and defer mine to 70 for maximum lifetime payment just in case I outlive my retirement accounts? The goal is to not outlive them so a solid allocation/withdrawal strategy will be key.
