Reader Carol W. asks, "I need to educate myself about how to allocate and draw down my savings in retirement. I plan to retire in about two years. I'll receive a pension (from the California Public Employees' Retirement System) and minimal Social Security. I have investments in a variety of retirement plans (401(k), SEP-IRA, money purchase, etc.) as well as cash savings and non-retirement money market funds. Can you recommend books/articles geared to someone about to jump into retirement?"
