Sounds like a pretty good idea. Let me see if I understand, basically I would invest an equal amount of money in several (say three) t-bills that mature on different dates (say 3mo, 6mo, 1yr) and then, as they mature, invest in new 1yr issues?

I noticed there are some CDs out there with better returns. Do t-bills have a better return after taxes? Is that why you recomed them and not CDs?

Here is the latest t-bill offered through scottrade. There were none listed past 6mos though. Why is that?

Qty Min Issue Coupon Maturity Price YTM
