Treasury increases efforts to enhance financial institution partnerships
June 1, 2021
The Department of the Treasury and the financial industry have enjoyed a long-term relationship. By partnering on the U.S. Savings Bond Program, together we have helped millions of Americans save for their future, create a rainy-day fund and pay for college expenses. We are very grateful for the partnership we have had with financial institutions over the years as paying agents. We want to continue our support and assistance to financial institutions as they work with individuals to achieve the American dream.
We are ramping up efforts to enhance these partnerships and ensure we are doing what we can to offer support. In the weeks ahead, we will distribute a survey to a subset of paying agents as a means of determining what type of assistance would be the most helpful to them. The survey will be open from June 15 through June 30. We also plan 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.
We appreciate your support of the U.S. Savings Bond Program. Financial institutions with comments or suggestions may use the online submission form. Individuals with questions are asked to contact the Treasury Retail Securities Site at (844) 284-2676.
