I do not believe that she needs to grow this money agressively, she simply needs to do a little better than inflation and protect it from bad investments and scoundrels.

OK. So she's met with Valic and Ameriprise. That should take care of the scoundrels.

Now, go with a fee-only advisor http://garrettplanning.com/ or simply put this money into a variety of Vanguard funds.

Here's a book you may find useful http://www.amazon.com/Bogleheads-Guide-Retirement-Planning/d...
