This fund is too conservative for you.

You're just 66, which means you have a good 20-30 years of life left. So you're still a long term investor, and long term investors prefer stocks.

Also, you've already got plenty of fixed income investments, including your social security payments and pension.

I don't know the amount in the 403b vs the capitalized amounts in your pension and SS accounts, so can't make a specific recommendation, but I think you'd want at least 50% stocks in the rollover IRA.

As mentioned, just put part in Vanguard's Total Stock Market fund, and part in their Total Bond Market Fund.
