Daily Question

Interest on U. S. Savings Bonds continues forever.

 
 

Answer

b) False. U. S. Savings Bonds have been popular ways to save for over 60 years. However, some types of bonds stop paying interest after a period of years. The following bonds (as of 2/4/16) are no longer paying interest.

Series EE Bonds - Issued from January 1980 through February 1986.
Series HH Bonds - Issued from January 1980 through February 1996.
Savings Notes - All issues.
Series A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J and K - All issues.

If you have one of these bonds, you should cash them in and put your money back to work.
