Thank you all.....and just to be clear - the priority is and always will be Mom's happy use of her money - These are her wishes, to TRY - I say again, TRY to leave something behind for the heirs....and, while trying to safeguard the principal, still find a way to make enough each month to allow her some "excesses", well deserved ones (her "necessities" are covered by other means). Can she not get an annuity with a "principal guarantee rider"? Do you sacrifice percentage points??
