Seriously, I also don't know what's safer: under the mattress until inflation returns and destroys it, or invested in any institution where the government will "borrow it."

I hope my after-tax Roth 401k will be safer than my traditional pre-tax 401k; that was the deal, anyway.

I'm tempted to take the sudden tax hit now and convert the balance to after-tax Roth, under the assumption that I can then live tax free when I retire. How naive is this?
