I am eligible for 5 and 10 year income averaging of total withdrawel from a 401K (over 300K). After looking at the tax schedules (as high as 50%) I fail to see the advantage of income averaging versus partial withdrawels starting at age 70-1/2 in six years. I don't need the money now and intend to leave most of it to children. Am I missing some advantage?
