With interest rates so low, I know many retirees are concerned and hurting about so little return on whatever may be in those accounts.May I suggest that they at least consider INVESTING "safely" in some investments that pay better returns that half a percent? Speak with a trusted advisor to find one ore more mutual funds, for example.However, I like my IRA money invested directly in various equities. I watch them and try to keep some in "safe" dividend-paying stocks while adventuring a bit with some in growth stocks.Here are a few dividend-paying stocks people might check out:AT&T (Symbol T) is paying about 5.1% annually in quarterly dividends.GE (GE) is paying about 3.3%.Intel (INTC) is paying about 3.4%.B&G Foods (BGS) is paying about 4.4%.These are not guaranteed, obviously -- nothing is! But these are a few who have been paying out pretty regularly for a long, long time.Sure beats 0.5% stuck in a bank!Just saying....Vermonter
