I see two disadvantages to using Treasury Inflation Adjusted Securities (TIPS) for retirement income.1)Your inflation rate in retirement may not match the index that the Treasury uses to adjust the value of your inflation bonds, see link:http://www.geocities.com/WallStreet/8257/infbond.html2) If you want to leave something to your hiers, TIPS severely limit your upside.
