<<<?. Have 2 1/2 years before I will need to start using div to supplement my pension&social security.>>>

#1--Go to the Fool's School and the Foolish Workshop Screen Definitions areas. That'll give you a good basis.

#2--Figure out what you need per year to live on and how much do you need to make up for from your pension. That is, if you need 50k to live on but your pension pays 35k, you need 15k per year. I'd then personally put 3-5 years worth of this money in CDs or money market mutual fund.

#3--The Foolish Four is a good start, might also want to consider the Keystone screen. These to are simple, easy screens to run for some one just starting out.

#4--Keep reading and learning. Managing your finances isn't as hard is the "wise" want to make out to be.
