I think lamons' question was more elementary than that. Customary apologies in advance if I am wrong. If you delay taking IRA distributions past age 59 1/2, your required distribution will be larger. Therefore, your income may grow to where a portion of your Social Security is taxable. That is all, I think.

The relevant calculations are provided in the worksheet on Page 25 of the Form 1040 Instructions for 1998.

I have not read the WSJ article, but it implies that the retired are growing ever richer, and therefore richer compared to the median family, who are still stagnating.
