For sure! I don't think we could even got an appt....

to meet with someone in that amount of time.

This is what Bob said he did six years before retirement. He read something about the Chinese ???...I don't know if that was dollars, their stock market or whatever, but for him, he saw a bust coming. He moved all his 401K into what is called a "guaranteed income account". At the time they were paying 5% interest. He didn't want to worry about it. Today they still pay 2% and I didn't realize until today when he told me, his 401K is still in that account, although he can move it around by email, phone, etc. within a day. Even though we must draw from it now, we take the minimum per year and we pay the taxes on it. He said he did think about maybe making a move, which is very easy, but he didn't. I think he and I really don't need the hassle at this point in our lives unless we get some money from a slot machine or blackjack payout.
