U.S. government agency securities are issued or guaranteed by a U.S. government agency, and may include conventional pass-through securities and collateralized mortgage obligations; unlike Treasuries, government agency securities are not issued directly by the U.S. government and are generally unrated but may have credit support from the U.S. Treasury (e.g., FHLMC and FNMA issues) or a direct government guarantee (e.g., GNMA issues). Therefore, this category may include rated and unrated securities.

U.S. Treasury securities are issued by the U.S. Treasury and are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. The ratings of U.S Treasury securities are derived from the ratings on the U.S. government.
