A US Treasury Bill is an incredibly safe yet short term bond with is provided by the United States Government and also has a maturity period of less than one year.

The profit of this bond is very low given how safe the nature of the bond is. On top of this the United States Government promises that they will pay the face value of the bond over an agree period. The price that you will pay for a bond varies due to competitive bidding situations.

The face value of the bond is paid towards the end of the agreed maturity period and there are no interim payments over that period either.

Treasury Bills are normally sold in groups of $1000 with a standard period of either 4 weeks, 13 weeks, or 26 weeks.

Using our US T-Bill Calculator below you are able to select the face value of your bonds using the drop down list of common values, or you may enter an alternative value that isn't listed in the "Other Value" box. The maturity period can also be selected using the drop down list, or using the "Other Period" box if the period you wish to use isn't listed.

The annual interest that is calculated, is calculated for the information only.

For example, if you were to buy a T-Bill of $10,000 for $9,900 over a period of 13 weeks then you would have a profit of $100 and a rate of return of 1.01%
