Question: I’m assisting my parents with their retirement. They have Traditional IRA’s and Roth IRA’s. They both also have pensions and will collect Social Security in two years and receive a monthly royalty from an inherited oil partnership. Their pensions and the royalty cover their living expenses, my father’s pension decreases by 10% when he starts collecting social security. My question is, what’s the most tax efficient strategy to withdrawal from their IRA and ROTH?
