<<<<< Also, is there a real benefit to someone like me to change to the Roth IRA now? I've always enjoyed the tax deductible contributions of my IRA and realize I won't be getting those with the Roth. However, I do know that my withdrawals will be tax-free at retirement. Is there a calculator available where I can punch these numbers in and make the comparison? >>>>>

I'm not sure if is exactly what you're looking for but may be a place to start.



That is exactly what I was looking for and it gave me some interesting results. I've decided to stay with my traditional IRA and invest my tax savings for (hopefully) a more comfortable retirement.

Thanks to both you and Bob for the replies.
