The employer I work for is saying that in the first of the year they will start matching a portion of our contribution to our 457 plan. In the plan I invest in a S&P 500 index fund. In my IRA I invest in stocks. I figure if I were to retire early, say at 50, then I could tap into my deferred comp and not touch my IRA until 59 1/2. Make sense?

Foolishly trying to learn.
