Finance Quick Answers



Why have U.S. Savings Bonds stayed so popular in America’s ever changing financial landscape?

The answer is easy: they are a great way to save. And buying bonds regularly is one of the easiest ways to invest today so you can enjoy tomorrow. Not only do they come in handy for retirement and educational funding, they have many other features that are just as important: safety, ease of purchase, tax advantages, and they can be cashed any time after six months. If you would like more information on how savings bonds can help you meet your investment goals, visit the Bureau of the Public Debt on the Internet at, or call 1-800-4US-BOND.
