I just read a comment on the Credit Card board that included a what-if scenario about sources of retirement income (when trying to decide whther to cash out some of an IRA to pay off debt). That made me curious about more peoples' sources of retirement income.

How much of your retirement income comes from Social Security and/or pension(s)/annuities? (The rest I presume comes from assets, royalties, rents, maybe even some sort of paid work.)

If you're close enough to retirement to be able to answer with sufficient accuracy, feel free to participate. If you're part of a couple, you get to decide whether to answer as yourself alone or for both of you (I'll answer as a couple as we completely pool our resources).
