Ed you really have not given enough information for anyone to hardly even ask questions.

I have read all the replies and I still have yet another quesition. To answer you question really depends on how much money you are investing relative to your desired income at age 60. If you are investing 10 million and you want $150,000 a year with increases for inflation, you are fine -- stick it in and forget it. I think it safe to say most replies don't think this is your situation.

If you have say $250,000 and you want to start taking out say $25,000 a year when you are 60 and have increases for inflation -- your plans has some serious problems if you expect to live more the say 15 or 20 years in retirement i.e. you will have an empty account.
