My father passed away a little over a month ago. He had his retirement in CDs, IRAs,savings/checking accts, and 1 money market. The sum total being just under $300K, all of which are in a trust. We (my Mom & brothers) are in the process of deciding what to do with all these accounts. The CDs are not getting much of a return; the money market is getting hammered and the money in the saving/checking accounts are just not being invested. I would like to consolidate and move this money around so it can grow with minimal risk and minimal tax implications, but I'd also like her to be able to access the money whenever she wants.

Thanks in advance,

MM
