Night Elf Posted July 22, 2012 Share Posted July 22, 2012 My MIL paid $37.50 for a $75 bond, series EE, for each of my children. I just checked the current value and one is $59 (have had it 14 yrs.) and one is $64 (have had it 16 years). How long does it take to fully mature to $75? It seems like it's going to take 20 years. That seems like a lot. Does it continue accruing interest if it's not cashed, so that it will be worth more if they wait more years to cash it? I tried finding out on the Treasury's website but I must not be looking correctly. They just talk about a 5-yr rate or something. I was wondering if these bonds only go to face value and nothing more. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
