US Savings Bond

The HTML to link to this page

A US savings bond is a bond sold by the United States Treasury to raise money for its operations. A US savings bond is non-transferable, meaning it cannot be sold on the market to other investors: the US savings bond can only be bought from, and sold to, the US Treasury. The US savings bond is issued in denominations of $50 to $10,000, and matures in 20 or 30 years, although the bond buyer can redeem the US savings bond earlier than that. The US savings bond comes in three forms: the I bond, an inflation-indexed US savings bond that is given a new interest rate semiannually; the EE bond, sold for half its face value and redeemed at full face value; and the HH bond, acquired only as an exchange of the EE bond. A US savings bond can be used as an investment program and also as part of a special savings program via payroll deductions.
