In this situation, I am not so sure that I would not have advised the reader to open up a Treasury Direct account--and keep the money in short-term Treasury Bills (T-Bills). He could stagger the T-Bill maturities or match the maturity of the T-Bill(s) purchased with the time horizon that he thinks he would need to convert the T-Bills back into cash. FDIC insurance is only so good as the GOOD FAITH AND CREDIT OF THE UNITED STATES---but so is the default risk of a Treasury Bill. BTW-- Neither will be currently paying a high rate of interest at this writing ! Semper Paratus
