She wants to invest 78,000 in something that will give her a relatively stable income. I just starting to learn about investing & do not want to make a mistake with my mom's money. I only know one person who is knowledgeable about investing, but I do not want to rely only on him for information & opinions. From what you said I would go with Vanguard.One problem with bond funds is that the value goes down as interest rates go up and vice versa. If you are trying to cover 6 years (56 to 62) remember that 78,000 will give you about 1,100 per month with no funds left over. How does this compare to the annuity?
