Thank you Peter and Bruce for your responses. I am still a few years away from retirement, but I am trying to do some advance planning. My thought was that once in retirement, I would convert $20 - $30,000 at the beginning of each calendar year, with the idea that I may need some but not all of it for that yeasr's living expenses. Whatever wasn't used would build up a reserve for a future need for a substantial cash outflow. I expect that I will be at least 59.5 years when I retire, so it's helpful to know that I would be able to access the full amount right away if the need were there.

As I type this response, I am beginning to think that I have already addressed this in the past, but I couldn't find my old posts. I am grateful that I can ask a second time.
