Wait a little longer and you can use the contract to wipe your ass.

Covert it to a ROTH while the value is low.

Everyone wonders why I don't invest more heavily in my 401 and why I don't have an IRA... It's because I have absolutely no faith in our financial system and would rather be able to buy shit than watch my fake money evaporate.

In times of uncertainty, you will never lose money on a CD. Note; I did not say you will make a lot either. But your account will not dwindle.

Not true. A CD is federally insured. We've got a lot of tin foil going on if you think all the banks and the feds are not going to honor insured savings. That's a far different animal than uninsured investments in the stock market.

Could the bank go bankrupt? Yes
Could the feds refuse to insure the investments? Yes
Is it a high risk compared to the others? No

I just reinvested in my 401k ($2.00) so far it's worth $900,000,000. Just hope it doesn't get raided again. Seems to be an ongoing problem. :/
