How Investors and Policyholders are Affected by Actions at Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and AIG

I found this great Washington Post article answering a number of common questions that Lehman Brothers (LEH), Merrill Lynch (MER) and AIG account holders have.

Questions answered:

(1.) What if I own Lehman Bros. Stock or have a mutual fund that has Lehman shares? How would its collapse affect my investment?

(2.) What if I have a brokerage account with Lehman or its subsidiaries?

(3.) What if I have a brokerage account at Merrill Lynch?

(4.) What if I have a life insurance policy or annuity with AIG, which is struggling?

Here's the full article.
