TreasuryDirect has New Functionality!
August 16, 2004 — If you haven't had an opportunity to visit our other websites in a while, you may want to take some time to visit TreasuryDirect. We've made some exciting changes in the products, services, and information we offer over the Internet.
Here are just a few:
- You will find some brand new features in the TreasuryDirect application. You can now contribute funds to your TreasuryDirect account by scheduling regular payroll deductions with your employer, by setting up electronic deposits with your financial institution or by using deductions from other sources of income such as pensions or annuities.
- Funds received from any of these sources are used to purchase a Zero-Percent Certificate of Indebtedness (C of I). The Zero-Percent Certificate of Indebtedness (C of I) is a Treasury security created to serve as a source of funds for the purchase of electronic Series EE and I savings bonds within your TreasuryDirect account. The C of I does not earn interest and matures daily.
- We've changed some of the colors on the web pages in the TreasuryDirect application to be consistent with the rest of our TreasuryDirect website. However, you can still manage your electronic savings bonds as you always have.
Learn more about electronic payroll savings through TreasuryDirect on our website. For more information on the new C of I offering, check the Learn More about the C of I.
