taking 35,000 what to do

I am taking 35,000 of our 403b to be at the top of the tax bracket. I use it for our emergency fund when husband retires.... do not need the money so could I put in money market or buy some mutual funds and then pull it when I need it.?

Sure. You can do anything you want with the money. You just have to understand the risks/rewards with a money market versus equities. If you think you will need the money in the next five years, I would not invest in equities.

If you don't need the money right away you might want to consider doing a ROTH conversion with the $35K. I'm not familiar with 403b's but believe it's allowed. You will have to pay taxes on the amount converted, preferably from a separate savings account, but when you start making withdrawals from a ROTH it is tax free.
