The responses to my previous thread/post are very much appreciated.

I must plead ignorance. I am behind in the latest rules.

I used to be on top of it all when it came to retirement investing, but I have spent the past few years dealing with an unexpected divorce and major life changes, including a new job and I just have not kept current.

Now that the divorce is final and I know what my nest egg looks like, I need to get my ship righted and sailing in the best direction.

As far as retirement accounts, I currently have the following:

- 401K from previous employer

- TSP (federal govt employee account, relatively new) - government version of a 401K.

- Traditional IRA

- Roth IRA

I have been contributing to the 401K (previous employer) and TSP (current employer) to take advantage of tax advantaged investing. I then have been putting money in the Traditional IRA (post tax) and looking into also the Roth.

I am wondering whether I should convert any of these accounts or consolidate or...what. As I said, I need to get back on the financial wagon.

Thanks, RS
