Employees have the opportunity to invest in savings bonds and other Treasury securities through TreasuryDirect.
TreasuryDirect is a web-based system which allows employees to purchase, manage and redeem electronic (paperless) savings bonds, as well as purchase Treasury marketable securities (bills, notes, bonds and TIPS). For more information on the TreasuryDirect program, please visit:http://www.treasurydirect.gov
Employees who would like to sign up for the TreasuryDirect Program need to open a TreasuryDirect account. http://www.treasurydirect.gov
Beginning January 1, 2011, the form for payroll deduction, once you've opened up an account at TreasuryDirect, can be printed, filled out and sent to Employee Benefits in URI Human Resources.
