A Brief Explanation of TIPS
Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, or TIPS, provide protection against inflation. The principal of a TIPS increases with inflation and decreases with deflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U). When a TIPS matures, the investor receives the adjusted principal or original principal, whichever is greater. TIPS pay interest twice a year, at a fixed rate that is applied to the adjusted principal; so, like the principal, interest payments also rise with inflation and fall with deflation.
