I retired from my job about a year ago now (at age 65). I have a 401(k) and some money in IRA's which I have not drawn any funds from. This year, my income came solely from Social Security. My question is: Is there something that I should do with my 401(k) (like roll it into an IRA)? When should I begin withdrawing money from these investments? Since I have an open home equity loan that I would like to write off interest from, do I need to have an income? Can this come from a withdrawl of money from the IRA or 401(k)? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would roll to an IRA as you have more controll over the investments.Your income will probably not be high enough for you to itemize your deductions so you may get no deduction for interest. Since you have to pay the interest you are better off with no interest to pay.The income from a 401k or IRA does qualify as income.
