HS, I think that rkmcdonald covered a lot of good references for learning how to manage your finances in retirement. I would add that if you are new to managing investments, be careful not to get stampeded into make changes or major decisions until you feel comfortable that you know what you want to do and why you want to do it. Sometimes after a major life-event, like the loss of a spouse, a broker or financial advisor will recommend major changes in asset allocation or investment vehicles. Sometimes this may be good advice, but sometimes it just generates profits
