Buying Savings Bonds through TreasuryDirect's Payroll Savings Plan


Buying Savings Bonds through TreasuryDirect's Payroll Savings Plan

Did you know that TreasuryDirect offers a Payroll Savings Plan that helps people save money every payday? Employees can have a set amount of money from each paycheck sent directly to their TreasuryDirect account for automatic, recurring purchases of electronic savings bonds. It's simple. To get started, employees need to:

  • Open a TreasuryDirect account.
  • Set up a Payroll Savings Plan and choose the type of savings bond and the dollar value to put toward it every payday.
  • Ask their employer to direct deposit the amount to their TreasuryDirect account every payday.

Once the initial set up is complete, the rest is automatic. Savers can simply set it and forget it. To learn more, visit the Payroll Savings FAQs on treasurydirect.gov.
