It's your money. You worked for it. And there's one thing you can be sure of. One day, you and your family will need it. For college tuition. For retirement. For illness. Maybe even just because you want to take a vacation. But in a time when the socks have been knocked off Wall Street, when the world's economy is taking a shocking battering, and when everybody seems to have a horror story about a neighbor or a friend, it's easy to start wondering if your savings will still be there when you need them.
