The U.S. Treasury has been issuing paper savings bonds since 1935. As of January 1, 2012 paper savings bonds will no longer be sold at financial institutions. You can now buy digital savings bonds online at Treasury Direct. This change is estimated to save taxpayers an estimated $120 million dollars over the next 5 years. However, you may still continue to redeem paper bonds at Premier Financial Credit Union.
