You could go with a one-year T-bill for the most safety, but you can probably get adequate security for a better return.

I've seen one-year CDs yielding close to 7%. If you go the CD route, split up the $200,000 into at least three different CDs, since the deposit amount plus accrued interest shouldn't exceed $100,000.
