SETTLEMENT MONEY

By Terry Savage on March 19, 2023 | Chicken Money

My husband received a settlement for 152K from an accident at work that has ended his working . I have been sitting on this check for several weeks because I don’t know where to put it that it would be safe.
We want to be able to get to some of it if needed.
Thanks Terry! I listen to you on WGN

Deposit it in a bank MM fund. Then open a TreasuryDirect.gov account and buy T-bills with at least $100k. Read this article to see how to do it. This is the safest investment possible. https://www.terrysavage.com/t-bills-beat-cds/

Buy half in 13 week bills, and the other half in 26 week bills. Set up automatic renewal at maturity; you can always change that until a week before maturity.

Leave the balance in the money market fund for liquidity.
