U.S. Savings Bonds

As of December 3, 2011 paper savings bonds are no longer being sold at financial institutions. However, savings bonds are not going away.

If you are planning to buy a savings bond, you can buy it online through TreasuryDirect, a secure, web-based system that has been used by investors since 2002.

Existing paper bonds are still valid and will earn interest for 30 years from the issue date or until redeemed. To purchase bonds or find more information, please visit the TreasuryDirect website.
