PITTSBURGH, Oct. 31, 2012

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Federated Enhanced Treasury Income
Fund (NYSE: FTT) today paid a distribution per share of $0.072. The fund
employs a managed distribution plan to support a level distribution to
shareholders that may be comprised of income, capital gains and/or return of
capital. Under the plan, the fund makes monthly cash distributions
approximating 5.5% of the fund's net asset value (NAV) on an annualized basis
based on the fund's NAV from the previous month-end. The fund may make
distributions in excess of those required under the plan in order to meet its
obligations under the Internal Revenue Code. This press release is issued as
required by the fund's plan.

The distribution paid today is based on the fund's NAV of $15.79 on the last
business day of September 2012.

Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about the fund's investment
performance from the amount of this distribution or from the terms of the
fund's plan. The fund's estimated sources of the distribution paid in October
and for its current fiscal year are:

^1 The fund's current fiscal year began on Dec. 1, 2011.

The fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net
realized capital gains; therefore, a portion of the distribution may be a
return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or
all of the amount the shareholder has invested in the fund is paid back to the
shareholder. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect
the fund's investment performance and should not be confused with "yield" or
"income." The amounts and sources of distributions reported are only estimates
and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and
sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the fund's
investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be
subject to changes based on tax regulations. The fund will send shareholders
a Form 1099 DIV for the calendar year that will tell shareholders how to
report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.

The table below includes information relating to the fund's performance based
on its NAV for certain periods.
