       the facts about your pension and retirement savings plans.
       It's easier to maximize your income, lower your taxes, and
       avoid penalties if you understand your pension and 
       retirement savings plans. Get the essentials in order -- 
       When to get started-and how. Give yourself two to five 
       years to put your investment strategy in place, six months

       withdrawal to 3 percent to 5 percent and raise the dollar 
       amount you withdraw to keep up with inflation -- When an 
       annuity makes sense. An annuity can guarantee you income 
       for life, but costs and health of the issuer vary widely -

       window of opportunity for conversion may be small -- When
