Just retired, hope to be here 25 yrs, want to invest in CD’s or ira’s our large sum to be safe.

By Terry Savage on January 12, 2021 | Chicken Money

One of us a cancer survivor, we are afraid of losing what we have, is it foolish to keep in CD’s and IRA’ S ? We are 65 and 68

Terry Says

It’s not foolish. It lets you sleep at night! But with the current artificially low interest rates, it’s very annoying! That won’t last forever though. And you’ll be glad you have cash.

But over the long run — at least 20yaers — you will need some offset against inflation, andperhaps this would be a good time to meet with a FIDUCIARY financial planner who only charges a set fee.
