"Right now I have a tough time using a balanced portfolio with interest rates so low. "

It's tough. I have some money in REITs and GNMAs.....along with TIPS......

also still have a few CDs but not renewing them since they only pay 1.x% for five years .....and a lot less for a year or two.

Moved some money to dividend paying stocks.

Still keep enough cash in the IRA to fund the RMD for at least six months - but the money fund pays 1+% interest.....
