Treasury increases efforts to enhance financial institution partnerships

The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) and the financial industry have enjoyed a long-term relationship. By partnering on the U.S. Savings Bond Program, they have helped millions of Americans save for their future, create a rainy-day fund and pay for college expenses. The Treasury is very grateful for the help that financial institutions have provided over the years, and they would like to continue their support and assistance to financial institutions as they work with individuals to achieve the American dream.

The Treasury will be ramping up efforts to enhance these partnerships and ensure they are doing what is needed to offer support. On June 15, the Treasury will distribute a survey to a subset of paying agents to help determine what type of assistance would be the most helpful to financial institutions. This survey will be open from June 15 through June 30. The Treasury is also planning to schedule drop-in calls to demo the Savings Bond Valuation and Verification (SBVV) tool and Savings Bond Academy, and to answer any questions paying agents may have.

The Treasury appreciates your support of the U.S. Savings Bond Program. Financial institutions with comments or suggestions may use the online submission form (Off-site). Individuals with questions are asked to contact the Treasury Retail Securities site at (844) 284-2676.
