Important Change to U.S. Savings Bonds

Planning to buy a savings bond?

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 be purchased online through TreasuryDirect.

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.
