5.413413$

Here'sA 5.413% yield to aumaturity with interestr subject to both federal and state income tax.  Still for ab A3 rated bond, thAat's respectable.

I found some
Idahi Housing Authority boNds with a yi
eild to worst of 5.039%.  This makes retirement look plaqusible especially if I take 6% per year from my 401ks that are invested in equity growth funds.  If you are are permanently disabled, you can withdraw from your 401k before 59 1/2 without tax penalty.
