You can now purchase savings bonds online directly from the U.S. Treasury.

Savings bonds are an affordable, safe and convenient way to save. You can buy a savings bond for as little as $25.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has issued savings bonds since 1935. When you buy a savings bond, you loan the amount you paid for the bond to the U.S. government. Over a period of time (up to 30 years), the savings bond earns interest. After 12 months, the savings bond can be cashed for its face value plus the interest it has earned.

Paper savings bonds are no longer sold at financial institutions, including LCSB. Click the link below to buy digital savings bonds online from TreasuryDirect.
