At the age of the bereaved, the inheritance is not a lot of support for the rest of her life, but if supplemental to a living wage is way over. We always say to bereaved that they should not make irrevocable decisions in the first year. Put the money in C.D.s (several) for the ferst year while you get educated about handling money and over the rolly coaster emotional ride from your loss. You can afford to pay for the kids in State schoo;s and not take too big a chunk of the inheritance. You don't have to make the decisions now. Remember, a broker is a salesman, not an investment advisor. If you seek advice, get it from someone who won't profit from your investment (more than a small advisor's fee).
