I assume the MM fund is in a rollover IRA and you did not take possession of the funds directly. I recommend you see a Fee-ONLY financial planner through The Garrett Network. The only fee they get is what they charge you. They get no commission, kick-back or other fees to steer you to high fee funds. They are working for you.
