TREAS/FISCAL RIN: 1530-AA19 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: Payments by Banks and Other Financial Institutions of United States Savings Bonds and United States Savings Notes 

The Fiscal Service plans to amend the savings bond payment regulations in 31 CFR part 321 to formally add an option for paying agent financial institutions to digitally stamp payment information on paid bond images, instead of physically stamping the information on the original paid bonds.  This change will not impose any new burden on banks or customers, and will align the regulation with current practice that has been implemented under waiver authority.  The Fiscal Service also plans to amend the paper savings bond regulations to eliminate the current conversion and reissue transactions, which are expensive to process.
