Pay off debts or put it in savings. I don't know about retirement there, but if you have something like an IRA I would put some of it there.

I would save it somehow. You never know when you will be in a sticky situation and need some cash. Put it somewhere insured and secure. Put it where is can be given interest in a decent manner. You will need to see what is in your area and then make you decision from there. If like me you have a banker you can talk to. Explain this to them and see what they have to say. Good luck and congratulations.!

You may want to invest it in a good project for the community. Of course save some in the bank for some emergency use.Also give something to the Church or any charitable institution.Your lucky to have that commission and so share it.Through sharing you will receive even more.(By the way how did you earn that and what company?)

I would certianly invest it. You could do a lot with $4,000. stocks, bonds silver certificates. I personally would look for a stock that was doing well and invest it there.
