Sales of paper Savings Bonds ended on December 31, 2011. An online account can be used to purchase electronic ones through Treasury Direct. Click on the EE/E Bonds link for EE Bond rates and information. Click on the I Bond link for I Bonds. Your online account can be used for one-time or recurring purchases.
You are welcome to redeem your paper Savings Bonds at an LOC branch. There is a three month interest penalty if the bond is cashed before five years. It takes about eighteen years for paper EE bonds to reach face value (they used to cost half the face value to purchase) and they now offer a guaranteed rate of return. The day the paper EE bond reaches face value is what most people call the maturity date. Both EE and I bonds earn interest for thirty years, so the bonds at final maturity will be worth more than their face value.
