Savings bonds enter the online age

(NAPS)-There's good news for those looking for a convenient way to save for the future.
While the Treasury Department is phasing out the familiar paper version of the savings bond, it is still possible to buy savings bonds directly from the Treasury Department-electronically.
By opening a free TreasuryDirect account, consumers can set up an online savings program and purchase electronic savings bonds or other Treasury securities either through direct deposit from their pay or from their checking or savings account.
The program combines the ease and convenience of an electronic transaction with the dependability of U.S. savings bonds.
