Systematic Withdrawal Plan

A way to receive regular payments from an annuity, mutual fund, or other investment vehicle. One way of conducting a systematic withdrawal by selling one's interest in an investment vehicle slowly over time and keeping the cash from the sales. This reduces the risk that the investor will sell all of one's interest at once and receive a lump sum payment when the market is in a downturn. Systematic withdrawals may occur automatically, such as in Social Security or in some retirement plans.
