Questions? I have yet to purchase Ibonds electronically, but wish to do so. If DH and I wish to purchase 30k each, do we have to open an account for each of us, or will one account be sufficient?

I just opened a Treasury account, so I'll chime in here.

Treasury Direct is only available to individuals. It has the convenience of being able to be opened online, I think. So you'd have to open two accounts, one for each of you.

Legacy Treasury Direct can have other kinds of ownership, like joint owners. You have to fill out paper and mail it in. (This is the kind I opened.) When you buy Treasuries, you have to give them a social security number. That's how they keep track. You get paper statements with this kind of account.
