My husband and I retired in a hurry because of an emergency situation with my parents. We moved to the US from overseas and just received our retirement funds into our checking account from overseas.

What is the best place to put this money where it will be safe and have a reasonable return?


i think it's almost a Law of Physics -- if it's safe, there's no reasonable return. and vice versa.

you have to find a balance between a return you'd like, a return you 'need', and a 'safe' you can sleep through

hope that helps some.
