The U.S. Department of the Treasury has transitioned the savings bond program to an electronic process and no longer allows financial institutions; including Boone Bank & Trust Co., to order savings bonds for customers. If you would like to purchase savings bonds, you will have to order them online.
Steps to Order Savings Bonds:
- Visit the U.S. Department of the Treasury website at www.treasurydirect.gov.
- Set up an online account.
- Once you have an account established, you will be able to place orders online for the Series EE and 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 wherever you have secure Internet access.
While Boone Bank & Trust Co. can no longer 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 to assist you with your questions.
*Savings bonds are not FDIC insured.
