I'm about to take the plunge, and I've been getting conflicting advice on how to start withdrawing funds.

My investments are split among a regular IRA, Roth IRA, and a small regular brokerage account.

Together they would produce enough enough in dividends each year to keep me going along with a small pension.

Trying to figure out if I should just take the dividends from all accounts (some taxable, some not) leaving the capital, or spend down the regular and Roth accounts as some have advised. I know that eventually I will have to take the required minimum from the regular IRA.

Pros & cons?
