There will be some SS. I will be wanting just about the amount extra that the total current annual dividends from all of my accounts would provide.

Good idea on taking the dividends 1st from the brokerage account since as you said, I've already paid tax on them.

Interestingly enough, an accountant told me to spend down the brokerage account (cap gains only) and then live tax-free on the Roth and leave the regular IRA as long as possible to put off the taxes as long as possible.

Maybe the accountant thinks I will be dead before I have to tap the rIRA....
