All You Need to Know About Bonds

Just because paper savings bonds ended in 2012, that doesn’t mean you can’t still reap the benefits of savings bonds. In an effort to save money by reducing paper products, the government made the digital switch. This not only helps consumers earn money with the old-fashioned investment strategy, but it also eliminates the risk of losing the bonds in a fire, flood or robbery.

You can still redeem your paper bonds from local and national financial institutions, but all purchases of new bonds will be in digital format.
