Remember, after December 31, 2011, U.S. Savings Bonds Series EE and Series I will only be available for purchase online through the U.S. Department of the Treasury website at www.treasurydirect.gov. They will no longer be available for purchase through financial institutions, including Community Bank of Tri-County.
Existing paper bonds will still be valid, and will earn interest for 30 years from the issue date, or until redeemed.
