Hi, I’ve been in NY for about 6 months now. And am wondering what to do with my savings. Bank of America has practically zero interest rates. Any tips on FDs or mutual funds here in US? Or should I..

Just transfer this money back to India and make a FD there?

Throw it into an S&P500 ETF if you want some risk. Put it in a Discover or Ally high yield savings acct (2.00-2.25% + signup bonus) or a 3-4 yr CD for risk free return.

Consider getting a savings account with Discover, Capital One, or Marcus by Goldman Sachs. They offer interest rates between 2-2.25%. Much higher than BoA or Chase

While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week. Our diocese has decided on full return 5 days/ week for all 42 schools despite a recent increase in COVID in our communities. Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!
