I'm a long way from 72t, but if and when I get there, I won't be paying them to either watch my money, move my money, or figure the numbers. If they figure it for free I'd probably appreciate the double checking. The math, as I understand it, is not terribly difficult.

But I'm becoming more of a rabid DIY'er.
