I want to thank everyone for their reply. I am contributing the max to my 401k, 17%, the most my company will allow. I think I will start a Roth, but at 2000 a year, by 65 that is only 28,000 plus the interest. To me that won't help much when experts say my life expentancy is all the way to 90 yrs +. I have some money I can invest, just need to know where the best place to put it will be. I think I understand no load and "b" investments, so how does one find a place to invest where I get to keep my money, not give it to a broker or pay it away in fees? I know I need an agressive "something" because of my age, I guess that is what I am really looking for here.
Thanks,
Lynn
