How to Start Saving

You Can Save Today!

Setting money aside on a regular basis can help you achieve meaningful goals for you and your family – like saving for your child’s college education, buying a new home, or feeling confident that you will have a comfortable retirement.

We all know it’s important to save for the future, but sometimes it can seem daunting. You may feel like you don’t have enough extra money to put any aside, or that managing your savings will be too complicated.

What is Your Savings Story?

Saving Can Be Convenient and Affordable

The U.S. Department of the Treasury offers affordable, safe and convenient savings options that can help you reach your goals. You don’t need a lot of money to save—every little bit adds up.

You can buy a savings bond for just $25 or other Treasury securities starting at $100. It’s convenient to buy and manage Treasury securities online, 24/7—no waiting in line. And you can set up a payroll direct deposit to buy savings bonds or Treasury securities each pay period, so the saving is done for you automatically.
