Whether your retirement has already kicked off or is still in its pregame phase, you should know the score when it comes to an exciting — and increasingly relevant — vehicle for income and capital preservation: U.S. Treasuries.

What are U.S. Treasuries?
U.S. Treasuries are debt obligations issued and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. That backing carries weight due to the federal government’s taxing power and the relative size and strength of the U.S. economy. U.S. Treasury securities can provide dependable, steady cash flow and preserve invested principal, if held to maturity.

Why are U.S. Treasuries important today?
As a result of the aggressive interest rate (hut, hut) hikes by the Federal Reserve, yields on short- and medium-term U.S. Treasury securities such as Treasury bills and Treasury notes have risen substantially in the past year. If you have “lazy” money lying around and not keeping up with inflation, a U.S. Treasury fund can help you meet your goals of maintaining liquidity, preserving capital and generating income!
