Post Judgment Interest Rates

The interest rate allowed on judgments entered in Federal courts pursuant to 18 USC 3612(f) (2), 28 USC 1961, 40 USC 258e-1 and calculated in the manner prescribed therein has changed. The rates under those sections are no longer based on the auction of 52 week T-bills.
