My wife and I are both public teachers in CA, in our mid-40's and decided that our Roth IRA funds would be better invested by purchasing service credit toward our CA State Teacher's Retirement system plan. I would be careful about putting all or almost all of my eggs in one basket. Especially since both of you work for the same employer. Right now, what I read about CA is that it has massive budgetary problems. I wouldn't be so sure that in 10-15 years CA retirement pensions aren't cut. Who is to say that CA doesn't file for bankruptcy or defaults? Everything gets cut 20-40%? Who knows?I would be looking to see if you can get a lump sum payment at retirement. But thats just me. I'd rather have my money in my grubby little hands as opposed to someone elses.JLC
