Turning a nest egg into retirement income

There are plenty of strategies for how to turn your retirement accounts into a reliable income stream at retirement. Walter Updegrave is one of my favorite financial columnists due to the high quality of his research and writing. He answers this question in an article that is short enough to absorb but also includes links to valuable tools and resources. Updegrave leads you through the process of deciding how much monthly income you need, how to determine the amount you’ll get from Social Security, clearly explains the basics of annuities, and provides guidance on how to invest in retirement… all in one article!
