<<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. >>

Vicki, with the Legacy Treasury Direct, are you saying you cannot track online and have to use the mail system? I will check the site DM gave, but you just opened, so wondering, or maybe it's just a preference.

Also, just putting this question/thought out there, and will again check the site, but if opening two accounts online, wondering if one would also have to have two checking accounts linked to the accounts, or if one with both names on it would be sufficient.
