Re: OT but for a good casue- Cashing in Savings Bo
series e bonds mature in 40 years. series ee bonds mature in 30 years. this does not mean you can't cash them in, just that they will not be at their full value if you cash them in before their maturity. for example: i work at a bank and i just had a customer come in and cash a $500 dollar series e bond from 1963 (fully matured), which he bought for $375 and it was worth well over $3000. that's what full maturity is. when it reaches it's peak it stops earning interest. hope that helped.
