Thanks for all of the help, I appreciate it!!!

The company does match on the 401k.....100% on the first 3% and 50 on the next 3%. I am currently putting in 8% of my pay. I have my money going into a mix of things in the 401k, which leads me to the next question. I was reading the info on the 401k's on the home page that you told me to read, and it basically says to put your money in an index fund, if you have one in your 401k. We have 2 index funds in our 401k, so should I put all of my money in those?? We also receive company stock, but I think we only get that if we're investing in that in our 401k as well, so should I put some money in the company stock just to get a match?? The company stock isn't all that hot either, but is it worth it to put in just to get the match??

It's Timken stock, and it hasn't been doing so hot lately, anyone care to give any insight on what it might do after the Torrington acquisition?? I don't want to put money in company stock and then have it pull an Enron type move, so any insight there would be greatly appreciated as well. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks!!
