How to tap your retirement funds

Saving for retirement is half the battle. Withdrawing from your retirement funds so they provide a steady income after you stop working presents a whole other set of challenges.

"As much as 70 percent of your hard-earned retirement funds can be eaten up by income, estate and state taxes," says individual retirement account guru Ed Slott, author of the retirement-planning books, "Fund Your Future: A Tax-Smart Savings Plan in Your 20s and 30s" and "The Retirement Savings Time Bomb ... and How to Defuse It."

Compare banks for the best savings rates

To avoid costly traps, Slott and other experts urge consumers to know the rules, plan carefully and maximize opportunity whenever possible.
