Am I safe to continue investing in Warren Buffet's 90 percent stock, 10 percent bond recommendation, or should I play it safe and become more conservative as I near retirement?

It certainly depends on a number of factors, but you many people should consider the following allocation in retirement...

1. Cash to cover operating expenses

2. One Year of Expenses in Cash Reserve

3. Guaranteed Income Sources covering Needs (Annuities, Pensions, and Social Security)

4. Investment Portfolio allocated based risk profile, inclined to lean into stocks, and no more than a 4% withdraw rate.

5. Legacy bucket that is long term and can be more aggressive.

Again, the above strategy is a general approach but one that applies your risk to investments in a methodical way.
