  • How early retirees can build an income bridge Bankrate.com - Fri, Feb 27, 2015 9:00 PM AEDT

    If throughout your career you maximized savings into your tax-advantaged retirement accounts and diligently socked money into after-tax savings, you may be able to retire early -- well before you're old enough to collect Social Security or pensions. Now the challenge is how to manage money in early retirement: specifically, figuring out how to withdraw income from your investment portfolio to support you until normal retirement age, while still allowing for growth to supplement expenses down the road.

Their goal is to maximize tax benefits in their retirement accounts for as long as possible, maintain investment growth and withdraw a steady stream of income.
