The familiar paper U.S. Savings Bond will soon be a thing of the past. The bonds will become paperless after December 31, 2011, available only online through the U.S. Department of the Treasury secure website at www.treasurydirect.gov.
Existing paper bonds are still valid, and will earn interest for 30 years from the issue date, or until redeemed. You can continue to cash your savings bonds here at Community Bank.
