To be charged 5.7% to make Keogh contribution is outrageous. Get out as fast
as possible. Regarding your 1998 contribution, you can go to any discount
brokerage (Fidelity & Schwab for sure) and open a Keogh account, literally for
free. If you are hesitant as to how to invest the money once it is in the account,
put it all in a money market account yielding 4% until you feel more comfortable.>>

Dear Badger! thanks for your advice. This is all new to me, managing my own investments, but even I have to say I am shocked I didn't think of this! Since I had just talked w/VAnguard yesterday about putting a 401a into a money market acct. temporarily. I think I don't have the hang of all this enough yet to see the similarities between different transactions and accts. I thought the Keogh was something totally different. Many thanks. meowiz
