Thanks for all the replies. I guess my initial thoughts about converting the IRA to the Roth was NOT having to pay taxes or RMD. It seems like the consensus is to wait until I'm in a lower tax bracket to make any moves, and delay SS until later too. I also like the suggestion to add 50 to my recent tax return and see where that would put me..thanks...that was the ballpark I was looking for. So far I've done all my investing without the "professionals" after getting badly schooled with a VUL with AMEX. I was so po'd I delved into the Fool and others and have done quite well (as has the market) the last 15 years or so, I'm just hesitant to go to a "Tax adviser" ie another "professional"
