In addition to the good advise JB has given you, you might also look into TIAA-CREF. (www.tiaacref.com)My husband and I own Roths at both Vanguard and TIAA-CREF. I'm very happy with both. I do like TIAA's website a little better, but only because I feel it's more user-friendly. Vanguard's site definitely has more information on it, but not anything that I seem not to be able to get without logging on. (Did that make sense?) I could be wrong, but it seems that way to me. You also might want to look into the fee structure between the two companies. Here's a link to a post I wrote re: Vanguard's fees:http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=14988801I've also heard good things about Fidelity. I think the difference between Fidelity and Vanguard is something like the personal preference between Pepsi and Coke, or Gibson and Fender. They both offer great funds and services, it just seems to be personal preference. I can't comment on the site because I don't go there much and I don't have an account there.I will reiterate JB's suggestion about getting "Mutual Funds for Dummies." It will open up a whole new level of understanding for you. Eric Tyson, the author, also has written another one, which is very good, called "Personal Finance for Dummies." I read both and highly recommend both.Good Luck,Caat
