Am retiring and have one time selection of withdrawal method. (457 plans can't be rolled to IRA's..ugh) With set monthly gov't retirement, hate to choose all 457k income as monthly income as well. Does it make sense to take some large tax hits in certain years..in order to have more flexibility with the money?..Majority of money is in house and deferred..but some stock. Since 457 is taxed as ordinary income..would like to get some out of 457 and into stocks..which are taxed at lower rate when sold. Also..lower income years could be beneficial for some social security benefits..when that time does come. Any input on this?
