Attend informational session to discuss key change made to The Guide to Cashing Savings Bonds
As announced in a communication dated January 12, we have updated The Guide to Cashing Savings Bonds (Off-site) to provide more flexibility to financial institutions that serve the citizens of this great country.
Moving forward, we have created the option for financial institutions to not cash savings bonds for both non-customers or new customers. Our Secret Service partners recommend that a customer be established for 12 months before cashing bonds at a financial institution. Where prior guidance directed financial institutions to cash bonds in both situations, the updated guide leaves this choice up to the financial institution.
Two paying agent informational calls have been scheduled to discuss this change. Register today (Off-site) to attend one of the 60-minute sessions below:
- Thursday, February 24 at 10 a.m. CT
- Tuesday, March 1 at 2 p.m. CT
Please direct your customers to TreasuryDirect.gov (Off-site) for information about how to cash their bonds. As always, you can direct any customer or non-customer with questions directly to the Treasury via email.
Thank you, once again, for your years of service in helping us provide our citizens a way to save and work towards becoming financially stable.
