Money Market account

Accountant's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Bank of America software?

Hi. My name's Lane.

...

You'll need to liquidate the T-bills to move them into a money market account at the bank.

...

The only way you can hold them in kind (keep them in T-bill form without selling them) is to move them to a brokerage account - the same kind of account that can hold, t-bills, notes, bonds, stocks, etc. OR get the bank to hold them in kind (not all will do this) OR hold with Treasury direct.

...

Although money market accounts have T-bills as the underlying asset, you don't own the t-bills themselves. You own the money market fund or money market deposit account.

...

There are both money market deposit accounts at the bank and money market mutual funds at the brokerage firm (or brokerage platform of the bank).

...

But neither of these hold your specific T-bills. The only way, again, to hold t-bills in kind (keep the ownership your specific t-bills, with their specific CUSIPs) are to hold them in a brokerage account, or AS T-bills with the bank (not all banks will do this, typically only banks that sell T-bills will hold them in an account for you, in kind) or with Treasury Direct.
