I admit to not having followed this thread except for the origianal post and the last several posts, but if capital gains is not an issue why not sell all those stocks and simplify? Put the money into Vanguard index funds, e.g. 30% total stock market, 20% total international stock, 10% REIT, 20% short-term corporate, and 20% intermediate-term corporate bonds; or one of Vanguard's targeted funds. Then decisions about how to take pensions and so forth can be made absent clutter, and any help with such decisions should be much less expensive. You know the answer to risk tolarence can only be made by the investor, and the Vanguard web site has tools that can help with such a decision.
