Purchasing T-bills with unrealized cash

I'm a straddle writer that typically carries 30 to 40% of my net liquidity as unrealized cash, on which Id like to earn some interest.

Does any one know which clearing firms allow the purchase of T-bills in excess of net liquidity?

Spoke with Wedbush today, and they do not.

In my RJO account I held T-bills during the years when intest rates were higher.

I'm currently buying boxes with margin and unrealized cash at Interactive Brokers. SPX index options boxes yield 0.85%, about twice as much as one year t-bills, but they end up in the securities side of my account.

Can use ES in the commodity side, but yield is 20 basis points lower.

Others buying boxes? Which contracts?

I assume that with "net liquidity" you mean money to buy / sell additional futures.

Yes, I bought T-bills in excess of net liquidity. They were used insted of cash to cover margin.
