Spending your nest egg carefully is just as important as building it.
You’ve worked hard, dodged financial bullets and had enough foresight (or luck) to be able to put away a low-seven-figure retirement nest egg. Your 401(k) or individual retirement account has more money in one place than you’ve ever had anywhere else, but it doesn’t take a financial-planning genius to realize if that money is to last 20 years or more, there’s not much room for error.
