An American Savings Tradition
In 1935, then President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed legislation creating what we now know as U.S. Savings Bonds, and the rest as they say is history. From the Series E bond, that contributed billions of dollars to World War II financing, to today’s electronic EE and I bonds, the bond program has a rich history of helping America save.
In the early years, savings bonds were a significant contributor to debt financing, and today they continue to be an important savings and investment tool for individuals and families. They can also make a great gift for birthdays, baptisms, weddings, graduations, you name it!
We Don’t Sell Them, but We Do Redeem Them!
While Choice One Community Credit Union no longer sells U.S. Savings Bonds, we do redeem them! To do so, simply bring them to one of our three conveniently-located branches in Wilkes-Barre, Hazleton or Plains Township and one of our Member Service Representatives will take care of the rest!
