I have recently retired and am working with a fee based planner on what to do with $1.3MM which I will begin drawing money from late next year (72t payments). I will also have a smaller chunk of money which will remain in former employer stock.

Advisor is suggesting: 55% US large cap; 25% Intl; 15% small cap; 5% real estate; 35% bonds and 5% cash. The majority of the stock funds are DFA funds and majority of bond is with PIMCO.

Any advice on DFA funds? Is there a risk by having majority of stock funds with one company?

Also, former employer is a US large cap company. Does 55% US large cap seem high given that I already have a good deal of stock in this company?
