No. of Recommendations: 1
So, I was layed off about 4 weeks ago and am considering making a go of it for retirement at this point.

Sux. I've been there. It sounds like you are better prepared than I was.

My only suggestion is "Don't pay taxes until you have to. Let you money soak."

If you noticed my situation, I am 100% in mutual funds. Mostly in American Funds. Yes, it's front loaded, but at $1 mil the load becomes zero. I also had a couple of REITs I liked. A fey Vanguard indexers to be sure I maximize my exposure.
