I have a question (obviously). I work for a state government, and participate in the deferred compensation program. Currently, I put in about 2/3 of what I'm allowed to. I've had others tell me that I should contribute the max to this before I do other things. Recently, I inherited a little money, which I've used some of to begin investing in stocks. So, my question, should I continue to increase my participation in deferred comp, or use those dollars and add to my stock portfolio?
