W401K informs,

Usually Treasuries offer better rates than long term CDs. You can buy Treasuries direct from the Governemnt. I believe the web site Treasdirect.com. Check on your search engine.
Otherwise, long term CDs can usually be obtained from a bank or full sevice brokerage. You can open a separate IRA account with an institution that offers CDs if that is what you are looking for.


That's great news!

Could you point me to an institution that will sell me a US Treasury note with more than a 6% yield?

The highest yield for a 5-yr CD on Bankrate.com is 6.15%. (Discover offers a 10-yr CD at a yield of 6.00%) see link:

The current yield on the 5-Yr US Treasury note is 4.69%, the 10-Year yield for a Treasury note is 4.94%
