Hi Paul,Thanks..If you are really concerned about safety, go with Treasuries or FDIC insured CDs.Yes.. but the low interest rates are not encouraging. I have to keep a close on on the rates and see what is best and take it from there..AAA bonds are issued by the largest and strongest corporations in the country. Insurance makes them even safer. There is little concern (unless you are talking about long say 30 year bonds).I hear you ..but .,.after reading the "Defaulted Bonds Newsletter" ..well.. that churned up m juices a bit.. Intermediate term bonds say up to 7 years are reasonable. But note the yield curve is inverted and these are the ones paying the lowest interest rates at present.Yes yes.. Boo ho.. that hurts.. Some of the AAA YTM were not bad.. So I will bond ladder (very carefully) accordingly.. Perhaps someone else can help you with details of the insurance on bonds and how it works. I did find a few comments about it after searching the WWW.. I am now very curious as to how much of a premium this will cost me .. How this hurts the YTM etc. Since I like sleeping at night and want to stay retired. I may go for it if it is in my best interests.Take care and thanks ever so much for your help !! RB
