I would appreciate and invite anyone's review of the following analysis:Situation: 1. Will turn 59.5 years of age May 1, 2000. 2. Have mortgage at 8% interest 3. Have enough $$ in tax deferred account to pay off mortgage (currently in MM at 5% interest)4. There are no withdrawal penalities on the account 5. Currently at 36% marginal tax bracket 6. Will be at 31% marginal tax bracket upon retirement in 3 years.7. Amount to withdraw will not push me into a higher bracket either prior to or after retirement.Question: Shall I withdraw these funds and pay off my mortgage or wait until I retire to do so.My analysis says the Foolish thing to do is wait. What say ye?Persevere!
