Caat - Thanks for your quick response and the welcome.
My 401(k) is a non-employer-contributory one. They just switched to ING, Aetna Financial Services & are offering about 20 funds. About half of these are Aetna funds - Ascent, Balanced, Bond, Crossroads, Fixed Account, Growth, Growth & Income, Index Plus Large Cap, Mid Cap, International, Small Company, Technology, & Value Opportunity. There's a Fidelity Advisor Equity Income Fund, Invesco Dynamics and Health Sciences Funds, Janus Adviser Growth and Worldwide Funds, MFS Capital Opportunities Fund, Oppenheimer Capital Appreciation, Global, High Yield, and Main Street Growth & Income Funds, Pioneer Fund & Templeton Growth. I currently invest $500 a month, 300 in the Aetna Value Opportunity & 200 in the Aetna Index Large Cap. From a previous empoyer, I have balances in two TSAs,to which I can no longer contribute (it was for tax-exempt organizations only). One is a MetLife account, 60% in Fixed Growth & 40 in Stock Index (total amount is cuurently $48,800). The other TSA is a SunAmerica account and is split among 8 funds (including an equity index fund, bond fund, growth & equity funds) and that account totals just under $20,000.

This is really the extent of my retirement investing. I have some cd's and a savings account, but that's it. I'm 47 years old, so I have around 20 more years to work, & I don't mind some agressive investments.

I will check out the Morningstar Website & the Mutual Funds for Dummies books. Thanks, again.
