I am a 52 y/o male with 3 kids (one in college/one starting college in 6 months/one starting college in 2 years) (college tuition and other expenses alreay paid for through Pre-Paid Program). I am a stay at home parent. My wife works in the medical profession with an annual salary of $175k - $200K. We have the usual debts of home, credit cards, auto's.

Previous responses from other posters addressed your IRA questions. I will just stick in my 2 cents of observation: Your best investment right now might be to pay off all credit card debts and auto loans on which you are paying more than 0%.

Just a thought,
2old
