Paper savings bonds will no longer be sold at financial institutions after December 31, 2011.
But they're not going away-electronic savings bonds can purchased online through TreasuryDirect. An account can be opened online at www.treasurydirect.gov.
To avoid the hassle, stop by one of our locations and talk to one of our customer representatives about our savings alternatives.
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 here.
