Important Change to U.S. Savings Bonds

Planning to buy a savings bond? Paper savings bonds are no longer sold at financial institutions as of December 31, 2011. But they haven’t gone away — electronic savings bonds can be purchased online through, the only financial services website that lets you buy and redeem securities directly from the U.S. Department of the Treasury in paperless electronic form.

Already have paper savings bonds? Existing paper bonds are still valid and will earn interest for 30 years from the issue date or until redeemed. You can continue to cash savings bonds at financial institutions like Bank of American Fork.

TreasuryDirect is a registered mark of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
