kw,One more suggestion.Since you are still in your earning years, you should invest money into an IRA in your name. There is no problem with drawing money on some IRAs (your husband's rollovers) while your are contributing to different ones.Personally, I would set up automatic investments of $333 a month into an IRA going into a growth or stock index mutual fund. You take advantage of some wonderful benefits.For one, you will be getting dollar-cost-averaging. This really improves your return. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollar_cost_averaging This method works very well for higher risk investments because you'll buy more shares in bear markets when prices are low.Also, you will never pay taxes on the earnings in this account. In 10 years or so, inflation will have reduced the value of your husband's rollovers. This extra account will provide an additional (tax-free) stream of income in the future to make up for that loss in effective income.CG
