is the Payroll Savings Plan for U.S. Savings Bonds?
savings is a method many employers provide their employees for
the voluntary purchase of savings bonds on a regular schedule.
You decide how much to allot from your salary each payday and
your savings grow automatically. You decide what series and
denomination of savings bonds you want to buy. You decide how
the bond is to be registered - in your name or another person's,

employers offer only EE Bonds or I Bonds because their payroll
systems cannot accommodate two series. Others have not yet decided

they offer. If they do not offer the series you want, let them

offer that series.
