If they (retired person I'm writing about) don't buy individual bonds, the second best choice would be short-term bond funds?In addition to not understanding the details about the trust, which, as already suggested, is required in order to provide good advice on what the 'best' investment would be, we are also missing a huge detail on what the retiree's objective is for the $100k outside of the trust.The retiree doesn't know much about investing. I don't know if they would attempt to learn about buying individual bonds. I don't know much about it, I've never done it myself.I would suggest that the retiree probably needs a level of advice above that which is provided by a discussion board, from someone who understands the details of the trust, but probably isn't a trustee. The retiree might try looking for an elder-care service that can provide legal and investment advice.AJ
