Treasury bills are short-term debt instruments issued by a government. They are also known as treasury notes and bonds. Treasury bills have maturities of one year or less, so they are not considered long-term investments. They have lower interest rates than long-term investments such as stocks and bonds because their return is fixed by the government issuing them.

Treasury bills are short-term debt instruments issued by the federal government. They are also known as Treasury notes or T-bills. Treasury bills are usually issued on a semiannual basis, but they can be issued on a quarterly basis. The average maturity of treasury bills is six months.

Treasury bills are short-term debt instruments that are issued by the government and are guaranteed by the Federal Reserve System. Treasury bills can be sold in a secondary market, but they cannot be redeemed for cash before their maturity date.
