I am in charge of brothers supplemental needs trust. Will soon have moms estate money put in account. Don't want to rely on financial planner. But sure can't do it myself. Every time I try to read about investing for my and husband retirement I give up. We did retire. Too many options, too much Information. Can't make sense of it.

I'd suggest you speak with an atty within the law firm that did your mothers trust. They will have someone they work with their clients to refer you to.

Personally I love my FA who is more an old school stockbroker with a wirehouse.

To me one key is for you to know what risk (like a $ amount) is acceptable to you & your husband from your overall investment $. That is something only you can determine & then be clear on this with whomever you work with.

How do I find a planner I can trust since I don't have anyone to ask for a recommendation from?

When it comes to looking after someone elses money you have a duty to invest wisely and avoid risk. If you don't trust your financial planner shop around until you find one that you like. Personally I am happy to accept my planner's advice, they make their living by watching trends and markets so I don't have to. (I'm not saying I don't keep informed, just that I don't spend my time second guessing with every up and down trend)
