I'm not in that category after a recession and a near worldwide financial collapse a few years later but the "under the mattress" option is looking better all the time. Given what banks are paying for assets I want to keep liquid it wouldn't be much of a loss in income. And with banks adding new fees all the time, how long before they start asking me to pay to leave my money there?

Come to think of it, wasn't that an idea of Milton Freidman's decades ago? Banks should be secure depositories and get paid for it?
