Treasury bills are a reliable investment, and are preferred over many other forms of investment ventures. They give much more interest than a regular savings account.

 

Treasury bills are solid low-risk investments for people of all ages. Earnings from funds invested in treasury notes can be used to create trust funds, or pay for major purchases.
