I tried logging into my account and found out that it was closed by the US Treasury because it was inactive for 2 years. I thought 2 years was an unreasonably short period of time to close an account, especially with no kind of warning by email or regular mail.
I called and asked them how I would be expected to download a 1099 form from 3 years ago if were to get audited by the IRS and they didn't know.
I had no bonds or other investments sitting in my Treasury Direct account, but it makes me wonder how much money in bonds the government will keep when people "forget" they have an account or die with no paper trail for the beneficiaries.
