Suddenly, the places you thought your money was absolutely, positively safe don’t seem so safe anymore. Banks are failing at the rate of one every two days. The FDIC’s bank insurance fund is on the verge of bankruptcy. Once rock-solid insurance companies are being seized by state regulators. Are you sure your savings are truly secure? 

How to Keep Your Savings Safe will help you develop a safe savings strategy by revealing the potential hazards associated with bank deposits, money-market funds, annuities, guaranteed-investment contracts, and other traditionally “safe” investments. 

Today, especially when investing funds for college tuition, retirement, or the down payment on a house, Americans need to know more about the vulnerability of their savings. How to Keep Your Savings Safe includes lists of the most risk-free banks, S&Ls, money-market funds, and insurance companies, in America.  “Timely, clear, and very specific.”—Publishers Weekly
