I am 41. I am planning on retiring by age 50. Based on my current plan,
I believe I will do it (barring an unexpected disaster). I am still
struggling with if I should be investing that 15% in my 401K with all
its restrictions or should I invest outside of it, giving me much more
flexability. I know I can withdraw before age 59 and avoid penalty taxes
by making a level withdrawel over a certain number of years.
What is the consensus among all the fools on which way to go?
