U.S. SAVINGS BONDS CHANGES
The U.S. Department of the Treasury has announced they will end over-the-counter sales of paper savings bonds, through financial institutions and applications mailed directly to the Federal Reserve Bank by customers effective January 1, 2012. Over the next five years this move is estimated to save taxpayers $70 million. Although paper bonds are being discontinued, electronic Series EE and Series I Savings Bonds are available to purchase online through www.treasurydirect.gov. TreasuryDirect is a secure, web-based system that allows users to set up an account to safely and securely buy, manage and redeem electronic savings bonds; convert paper savings bonds to electronic. Financial Institutions will still continue to redeem your paper Savings Bonds that you have currently. Purchase U.S. Savings Bonds by logging on to www.treasurydirect.gov.
