Nearly $17 BILLION worth of savings bonds have reached final maturity and have not been cashed in!

That statistic is according to the Bureau of Public Debt. Good news for Uncle Sam, bad news for those bond owners. Those billions of dollars worth of bonds are no longer earning ANY interest. It’s like giving Uncle Sam an interest free loan.

What does extended maturity mean for a Savings Bond?

Extended maturity is the period of time between when a paper bond reaches its face value  – which is the amount printed on the front of the bond – and when the bond stops earning interest altogether.

Paper savings bonds will continue to earn interest after it reaches the amount printed on the bond until it reaches its final maturity.

Final maturity is usually 30 years from the issue date. Good News:
