The U.S. Department of the Treasury recently launched the Ready.Save.Grow. national campaign to help more Americans save for a secure financial future. This campaign will help raise awareness of affordable Treasury savings options, including electronic savings bonds and marketable Treasury securities. Additionally, TreasuryDirect® will be promoted as the secure and convenient site to purchase and manage Treasury securities 24/7.
Although over-the-counter sales of paper savings bonds at financial institutions ended December 31, 2011, electronic savings bonds remain available at TreasuryDirect.gov (Off-site Link). Customers may have questions about how to open a TreasuryDirect account, how to purchase electronic savings bonds as gifts and how to buy savings bonds through payroll deduction. Tip-sheets to help guide customers through these processes are available in a Toolkit for Financial Institutions (Off-site Link).
To learn more about this national campaign, visit the Ready.Save.Grow. (Off-site Link) website.
