What should I do with my IRA as a stay at home mom?

What are my other options besides cashing out my old IRA? Since I quit my job 10 years ago, what happens to the funds in the IRA? Does it just sit there?

The funds are yours. If you do not need the money and have a goal to use it at retirement, you should invest the money accordingly. If you are more than 5 years away to retirement, you should build a portfolio with mostly stock exposure. This way you give yourself a chance to grow the money as much as possible. If the markets are good to us, you should be able to double your money every 10 years or so. If you're not sure on how to do that, find a fiduciary financial advisor for advice.

I hope this helps.
