TreasuryDirect makes it a real pain to change bank account information. They require a signed form, certified at a bank. This is impossible if you do all your banking online, and it seems ridiculous for the small amounts of money I'm dealing with.

Has anyone figured out a workaround - for example, is there some way to open a new account and then send myself the bonds to the other account?

  • Unfortunately I have not, and what's worse is that many bank officials will look at you like you have three heads when you ask them to sign something from treasurydirect.gov.

Update: it looks like this may no longer be a requirement. I was able to withdraw from TreasuryDirect into another bank account without issue.
