i retired on 12/31/90 at 54 1/2 when the company closed my office and gave me an early retirement package - rolled everything including the lump sum pension distribution into ira and started the 5 year
equal distributions - went to work a few days later but continued the distributions because i was not going back to work - nine years later i am still working but i am down to three days a week. i wish that i had waited on the distributions or paid the 10% penalty for early withdrawals - i guess i am saying that you need to be real sure you are not going back to work before you start that five years of distributions
