This is an odd question, I know. I have some money stashed away in a safe deposit box at my bank. I've only made one deposit, it's my life savings actually. I don't want to invest because my SIMPLE plan at work has actually lost money in recent quarters. I will be retirement age in about 15 years or so. Is your stuff really safe in these boxes? I'm afraid to go check on it, I don't know why. Has anyone ever heard of money disappearing from these boxes? Nobody has the key but me. I do have a daughter on the record as having access to it, but she has no idea about the box. Am I just being paranoid?
