Jim2B;;To help get through these times, you'll want your retirement funds to provide more than the minimum of what you need. Re-invest the excess to continue building up your networth and insulate yourself from these unfortunate but expected occurances.I appreciate the advice, which is pretty much the straight party line, of course.A question for you: Just how does one "insulate" against "unforunate but expected occurrences"? I know of nothing that is "safe" except maybe CD's at the bank or sticking my money under a mattress or in a safe deposit box.The way I do it is to maintain a balanced portfolio, as I said, with most in good mutual funds (which I also check and change periodically, though not very often), plus some equities that I shepherd carefully, sometimes buying and selling some of those from day to day. In other words, I try to have SOME "insulation", but I also work at making a buck wherever I can to keep the boodle growing.We all have to do what works for us.Vermonter
