Hi Swing4TheFence88,

On the pensions: On my qualified pension, I accepted a buy-out in 2015. It would have been turned over in the bankruptcy to "the government" agency, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC). ERISA controls that.

For non-qualified pensions, my tiny one, the funds are an asset of the company so they are subject to bankruptcy loss.

In the past, I used various spreadsheets and relied heavily on Quicken Lifetime Planner.

In the past few years, I moved all my daily functions onto my Linux box and disconnected my WinDoze PC from the network. I wrote all my own applications for portfolio management, calendar, retirement planning and whole lot more. The only thing I use on WinDoze is Quicken and a great image program, ThumbsPlus. That is it.

Does that help you?
