The U.S. Department of the Treasury has transitioned the savings bond program to an electronic process. As of January 1, 2012, financial institutions including Reliance State Bank are no longer allowed to order savings bonds for customers. If you wish to purchase savings bonds, you are required to order them online.
How to Order Savings Bonds:
- Visit the U.S. Department of the Treasury website at www.treasurydirect.gov.
- Open an account online.
- Once you set up an account, you will be able to place orders online for the Series EE and Series I electronic savings bonds. Payment can be made through a checking debit or through payroll deduction through the secure website.
- You can buy, manage and redeem Treasury securities online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all from your home, work or wherever you have secure Internet access.
Although Reliance State Bank is no longer able to order bonds on your behalf, bank customers will still have the option of redeeming paper bonds at the bank.
The Treasury offers a customer service call center at 844-284-2676 (toll free) to assist you with your questions.
Savings bonds are not insured by the FDIC.
