<< I have $20,000 in an 18 month IRA earning 8% that will mature in a few days. The current rate has dropped to 4.2%. Obviously I don't want to reinvest at that rate. Need suggestions as to best avenue for investment since I'm 68 and will have to start to withdraw from my IRA in 2 1/2 years. >>

Beware . . . .there's really not enough information about you and your situation here for ANYONE to be able to give you an appropriate answer. One needs to know a lot more about you and your present situation and the details of your finances . . .and at least some idea of what you're objectives are here.

Sorry that this is not the kind of answer you were looking for. Any other specific answer would be a completely blind answer.
