How to Find a T Bill CUSIP Number

Save

CUSIP is an identification number given to all securities. This includes bonds, stocks, mortgaged backed securities, options, and anything that trades on an open exchange and/or is publicly traded as an investment. CUSIP stands for Committee on Uniform Securities Identification Procedures, and are issued by the American Bankers Association. All securities, including T-Bills, have an associated and unique CUSIP number.

  • Review the definition of T-bill. A T-bill is a short-term debt issued by the U.S. government. Debt is also referred to as "fixed-income" securities in the investment world. They are usually sold in denominations of $1,000 and up.

  • Go to the Fidelity CUSIP Look up site (Reference 1). Bypass the first two Search fields. In the bottom search box select Treasury if not already selected and then click Search.

  • Input the attributes on the T-Bill you want the CUSIP for. In the first field, use the drop down menu to select Bills. Enter a range for the maturity date, yield, coupon and ask price. Select Table to view data and click Search. Leave the field blank if you do not know the answer.

  • Click on the link under the Description column for the T-bill. The CUSIP will be the first data field listed for the security. For instance, the CUSIP for UNITED STATES TREAS NTS paying 4.25 percent and maturing in 11/15/2017, is 912828HH6.
