Do you dream of enjoying a comfortable retirement? Sending your children to college? Buying a new home? Then you know how important it is to save money regularly to reach your goals.  Fortunately, saving for tomorrow may be easier than you think.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury offers safe savings options that can help you take control of your future. Treasury savings options are:

  • Affordable. You don’t need a lot of money to save. You can buy a digital savings bond online for just $25 and other Treasury securities for $100—and there are no fees.
  • Safe. Treasury savings options protect your original principal. In addition, you can safely buy and manage them online through TreasuryDirect—the Treasury Department’s secure, web-based system.
  • Convenient. You can buy and manage Treasury savings options online, 24/7, at the time most convenient for you—no more waiting in line.

Treasury savings options are paperless, so you don’t need to worry about misplacing or storing them. In addition, all of your digital Treasury savings options are accessible in one convenient online location, where you can view account activity such as recent purchases and current values. Plus, if you have existing paper U.S. Savings Bonds, you can convert them to digital bonds 24/7 online at www.treasurydirect.gov.

Visit the Treasury Department’s Ready.Save.Grow. site – www.treasurydirect.gov/readysavegrow – to decide which of the six Treasury savings options may be right for you. Create your free TreasuryDirect account today and build tomorrow’s savings.
