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 State Bank & Trust Co. are no longer allowed to order savings bonds for customers. If you wish to continue 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 I electronic savings bonds. Payment can be made through a checking debit or 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 the your home, work or wherever you have secure Internet access.
Although State Bank & Trust Co. 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 to assist you with your questions.
