I have some savings ($35,000 USD) that I'll be living off of for the next 6-12 months. Is it possible to profit from some of this money in the short term before I need to access it?

Yes, and there are several ways, the safest is a high-yield savings account which will return about 1% yearly, so $35 per month. That's not extremely much, but better than nothing (you probably get almost zero interest on a regular checking account).

Sure, it's possible. But if the stock market decides to "correct" (or even crashes), you'll be in a world of hurt.

Thus, since it's so important that you not lose this money, just stick it in an online bank earning 1.2%, and withdraw "enough" twice a month.

EDIT: by "withdraw", I mean to transfer to your checking account.
