Hello, I was left with 700,000 and totally disabled from a accident, I'm 43 years old with a family to provide for. I need help and suggestion in determining appropriate investments. I spent a few months listening to planners , A G Edwards , cpa's, etc.. Then I found fool.com. I'm accustom to living on 46,000 a year. Right now the money is sitting in a money market earning 5%,while I investigate all avenues,that's why I'm here at Fool's school. I'm leaning towards Vanguards Index funds,some American Funds(load). I already own 6K in AGTHX (IRA with decent returns).I like Vanguard's VFINX. I don't know enough to dive into single stocks, so I was going to test the waters with 35,000 in blue chips, until I became familiar. How would I recieve steady income on a monthly basis and have it shifted into a account for living expenses from my investments? I don't mean to ramble,any suggestions on determining appropriate investments,and any other light shed on my situation would be appreciated. cuda2...........P.S. I don't like annunities,bonds or so called managed load funds or the returns in Money Market funds
