Insured Money Market Account - looking for advice..


I have about $5,500 in a Citibank insured money market account. The money was formerly a 401k but ended up getting dumped into this money market when I left my previous company. I just got my 2012 statement and apparently it earned .35% last year ($17 or so)…lol..

What are some decent options for moving this money into an account that yields a better return? Any advice is appreciated..

A conservative mutual fund.

There are online savings accounts that you can get close to 1% on. You could look into an intermediate or short term bond fund also.

As far as i know, i've paid no taxes on this or early withdrawal penalties.. would moving it to a mutual fund require me to do so?

Open an IRA or pay taxes on that amount and open a Roth

Did you roll your money into a Traditional IRA from your 401k?

pardon my ignorance, but i do believe so.. i received a "rollover IRA statement" and it lists the money as an insured money market account in the summary of current balances.

well you can transfer your IRA to another company like Vanguard if you're looking into mutual funds. i'd definitely move it out of that MM account
