Thanks for replying to my post on the Motley fool about taxes at retirement.

I am very seriously going with TIAA-CREF (vested immediately vs 4 years with the state) and putting it in their Growth, Index and Stock funds (about 40% in Growth, 40% in Index and 20% in Stock). If pension income is taxed all as income, then I might as well go with TIAA-CREF because of the low fees, service, quality, etc.

I'm guessing that my 403(b) (moving it out of junk stuff into a Fidelity US Spartan Index Fund) will be taxed as long-term capital gains. Roth IRA will be free!

Thanks again for the tax help.
