Auto-rolling T-bills at Vanguard

Post by Tortoise » Fri Jun 02, 2017 11:42 am

In a Vanguard account, is there a way to auto-roll a T-bill that's about to reach maturity--i.e., schedule the money to be auto-invested in another T-bill so that it doesn't have any "down time" in the settlement account?

I've checked a couple of times, and there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to do it.

Been trying to find this myself, but no luck. I suppose buying every three to six months wouldn't be too much work (haven't bought any TBills directly myself yet).

Yeah, buying individual T-bills is pretty easy. I’ve just been doing it manually once or twice a year so far; only takes a few minutes each time.
