For a brokerage CD (no early surrender allowed, even with a penalty), that is unacceptable interest rate/inflation risk to me. YMMV.

ally has a 5 year Cd for 1.5 percent. we have decided to leave the money in our savings account at .3 percent for the time being. if we found a really great rate someplace we would do it but ther is not any. well hold and see if rates go up in 2 years.

The credit union here has a debit account that yields about 2.5% with a 25K minimum and ten debit card transactions per month. Only pays this yield on the 25K though, then drops to under 5% for the rest. I can keep about 27K in there and get about $55 per month. A good place to stash emergency cash.

SORRY-working for and with women is NOT the same as being married to one.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Practically(?) everyone here has worked with women most of their lives. Are you seriously equating professional clinical & working relationships with longterm domestic ones? Sorry, but IMO, that's a bit... :crazy: na´ve. Not the same AT ALL.

It's no secret or news that money/finances are the #1 cause of arguments/strife between domestic couples. See: couples argue money - Google Search

I can't speak for Gerry, but I inferred from his posts, and others I've read, that he had had that converstion with his spouse, and in the interest of domestic harmony, the subject was closed.

My suggestion would have been to look into other products available through Fido or TRP, but someone else already suggested it.
