My my personal view point, I can't see doing it -- that said it seems to me the issue is a simple financial decision. It would be helpful if people knew where you lived. For example, I live in Georgia where there is not state income tax on Social Security and a healthy chunk of other income. The state of Tennessee has the Hall tax which would be a consideration. Another issue, how long do you and your wife expect to live? The average life expectancy for someone age 69 is 14 and 16.5 years for you and your wife. ( But those are averages. Are you in good health? Did you parents live to age 95? Then there are issues of how much money you are taking from your IRAs.
