    I am looking for input from those who already retired, as to how you tap your retirement accounts. I am really drawn to the Bucket Strategy, as described in Ray Lucia's book: Buckets of Money/Retirement Solution.

    Is anyone here using that system, or are you using the more traditional systematic withdrawal?

    To those contemplating retirement, here is a link to an article comparing the two approaches:
