Buy Treasury Bonds Online
Few investments are safer than Treasury bonds.
Few investments are safer than Treasury bonds. Get comfortable investing your dollars and get started with the easiest investment you can make:
Buy your treasuries online: At Treasury Direct, all you need is your Social Security number and a link to your bank account to buy Treasury bills, notes, bonds, Treasury inflation-protected securities and U.S. savings bonds.
There's no fee, but Treasury Direct charges $45 to sell securities before their maturity date.
If you plan to do that, it's better to open a brokerage account and transfer your bonds after a mandatory 45-day waiting period.
But don't play games. Buy Treasuries for safety and income.
