2). Am I guaranteed to have that much coming in each month?
3). What's the best strategy for taking Social Security? Should I file and suspend? Will I be taxed? How much will the remaining spouse receive?
4). Am I certain I won't run out of money in retirement and what can I do to reduce that possibly?
