Re: new organization

President Obama is doing a great job. The country is going in the right direction. There is no need to change anything.

Re: Retired with equity funds

I am curious. Have the interest rates on bonds/CDs gone up? I would have to have some really enormous bonds/CD's to live off their 2% or less interest rates.

Re: Pension Buyout Evaluation

One thing to keep in mind is that a significant percent of retirees will live beyond the age used to calculate the lump sum. To make up for this, retirees need investment returns up to 50 percent higher than that used in lump sum calculation.
