What should I do with RMD funds after paying taxes if there is currently no need for the funds and I want them to grow with limited risk?

You're doing a fantastic job of looking at the multi-faceted aspects of RMDs.  Your question is also a great one because not only does it show how complicated these can be but how imminent they loom not just for you, but for all retirees with money in tax deferred accounts. 

There are several approaches that would work but I'll start with that one which seems most applicable to you (this is for informational purposes only though). 

That strategy would look like this: Take your RMD and have the provider send 100% of it to the IRS.  Using this as a tax payment offset, then take a portion of the remaining funds equal to the tax payment just made (be aware of tax bracket thresholds) and convert some of the remaining funds to a Roth IRA.  Repeat this each year until all monies are Roth IRA.

The advantages of this plan: Roth IRAs are not subject to RMD rules.

You do not experience any difference in your income or taxes on that normal income as this is largely an insulated transaction- meaning your cash flow in retirement is unaffected.

You can leave this Roth as a tax free gift to your son and granddaughter that can continue to give them lifetime tax free growth as well!

As for which accounts, I would need to examine your situation and contractual obligations closely before increasing the specificity but if you look at the 10% free withdrawals as an optional cash account, that might provide more liquidity to maneuver this strategy, especially since you mentioned you don't think you'll keep them beyond the surrender period.

I hope this helps.
