Your Bond Tip for March 22, 2019
Why does the Treasury limit the amount of savings bonds that I can purchase annually
The U.S. savings bonds program was designed to provide individuals with an option to invest small amounts of money into NON-marketable (Treasury) securities. Should you want to exceed the limits of the U.S. savings bonds program, you could consider other investments, speaking with a financial professional, or consider investing with the safety and stability of marketable securities such as U.S. Treasury Securities (bonds, bills, notes and inflation-protected TIPS). These Securities are sold through the U.S. Treasury as well as from Securities brokers and dealers in increments of $1,000. Important: There are significant differences between marketable and NON-marketable securities, and individuals should understand all risks involved when purchasing ANY investment.
