Due to the U.S. Department of the Treasury ending over-the-counter sales of paper savings bonds on December 31, 2011, savings bonds will no longer be available at The Bank of Northern Michigan. Although paper bonds are being discontinued, electronic Series EE and Series I Savings Bonds will remain available for purchase online via TreasuryDirect at www.treasurydirect.gov.
