Hi all -

I maxed out my 401k last year and have been saving likely too much cash. My wife is a teacher, so has a pension, though I don't really trust it.

I've been reading out the backdoor roth and I'm thinking of doing one for 2012 for her and I via Vanguard. Anything I'm missing not to?

Also, we have a 6 month emergency fund and we own 20% of our home with a 3.75% mortgage.

Thanks!
