I have $50,000 I’d like to move from my savings account. I am 80 years old, widowed and retired. Not knowing much about the market I don’t know if I should place this amount into a Vanguard Mutual Funds, such as their Target Retirement Income (VTINX) or a money market as shown on Bankrate, such as the First Internet Bank with .60% APY or Sallie Mae Bank with .055 APY. (I already have my IRA account with Vanguard.)

Thanks for any help.
