Hi all
I'm new nad it shows--I think I just posted this question on the wron board. oh well. I guess I just need your advice/opinions or whatever suggestions you may make. I'm trying to gage my retirement health if you will. Let me just tell you where I am.

I'm 34, I have "$34000" in a retirement program thru work. I put it in quotes because the actual cash amount is $17000, but if I stay with the school system, the amount is matched 100%. If I leave the school system, I can take the cash amount and roll it over to an IRA. Currently, $4500 is going into the account annually. I also have about $11000 in a 403b and I'm maxing out on the contribution monthly. I have a Roth with $4200 in it(I've already maxed it for this year). The 403b and roth are with TIAA CREF and are in aggressive portfolios. ok, am I doing enough? am I overlooking an area? Another question, I have a sum of money(about 23000) sitting in a bank and earning nothing. How should I invest? I would like it to be relatively accessible, but also not sitting earning close to nothing. I don't have any CC debts, but I also don't have a house... I guess maybe I'm just panicking because I just got divorced! Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
