Other Benefits

Savings Bonds

The U.S. Treasury Department has added a new payroll feature to its electronic TreasuryDirect account system. You now have choices about how you purchase savings bonds. You can use payroll deduction to purchase electronic (that is, paperless) savings bonds through a web-based system called TreasuryDirect. This system allows you to establish an online account with the U.S. Treasury to purchase, hold, and manage securities. Through a payroll deduction, just like one you would use to contribute to a bank account or credit union account, you can transfer funds to your TreasuryDirect account and purchase savings bonds.

Consider these additional benefits when you open a TreasuryDirect account:

  • You can purchase and redeem your savings bonds online
  • You can view and track your purchases and account activity online
  • You can access and print detailed information about your current holdings 24 hours a day
  • In the future, you will be able to purchase Treasury bills, notes and Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) through the same TreasuryDirect account.

We encourage you to visit www.TreasuryDirect.gov for more information and a guided tour of TreasuryDirect. Once you have set up your account, and you choose the payroll deduction option, you need to print the payroll deduction form (PDF) and forward the completed form to the payroll office.
