Can anyone help get me started in researching strategies for withdrawing income from a portfolio for retirement. I'm not talking about how much you can take out of an IRA, etc. I've got this pot of retirement money (all of it in the market), and I'm realizing I don't have the foggiest as to the best way to extract money to live on in retirement. I'm not necesarily looking for specific advice, although that's always welcome. Where do I go to get info on questions like: do I sell an equity for cash, do I choose an income fund and take the income portion in cash, do I do a bond ladder on a portion of it? What are the pros/cons of this, that and the other? Are there any key words or phrases to search on? "Retirement withdrawals" only produced info on IRA minimum withdrawals which is not yet an issue for me.

Thanks for any guidance.
