The 30 Year Treasury Bond (also called a T-Bill) is the longest-term bond that the US government issues. The current 30 Year T-Bill rate was 1.88 as of the last reporting period September 17, 2021. As with all bond pricing, because it is issued for the longest period in time it carries with it the most risk, so the interest rate should always be higher than short-term government debt. However, if inflation looks imminent, sometimes a shorter-term bond may trade at a higher rate. This is known as an inverted yield curve.
