I have come across a ituation I 'm not sure what to do with. I am in my 50's and realizing that my current pension is not going to pay out what I expected I have been scrambling to open separate IRA's etc. (rather unfoolishly).Now I have inherited a sum of money which I have for the moment put into a bank money market account with the idea of moving some of it to an aggressive mutual fund to increase my retirement income. My wife, having heard (and listened to) the doomsayers would prefer to take it all out and put it in a safe deposit box. Any advice?
