Jim has $200K to invest-what should he do? (We should all have such problems!) Also in the category of "I wish I were him/her": Both Allison and Roseanne have nearly $2 million saved for retirement and need guidance.

Brian asked about whether or not dividends are reinvested in the TSP plan, Erica is trying to decide between a standard 529 plan and a pre-paid tuition program (check out this description from FinAid); and Daniel is not sure whether or not he should participate in his company's SIMPLE-IRA plan.
