My husband has invested fully with this MDP portfolio. He is retiring in 18 months, will be needing $30,000 per year to add to lifetime pension of 1900.00 monthly which pays our mortgage of 140,000 at .04875. We have 430,000 in equity in the home and live in Charlotte, NC, which through this mess has held its value very well as far in home prices. Today! we have 580,000. in the MDP, we will we together be getting $2700.00 monthly in SSI in 18 months. Currently we live on $90,000. Will be eligible for COBRA until Medicare but I take many meds per day. Is this portfolio right for us?
