I Bonds Basics / Primer

For those that are unfamiliar with I-Bonds or just need a refresher, please check out my old post U.S. Savings Bonds: I-Bonds and EE-Bonds – Good investment?. Keep in mind that it was written 6 months ago, so “current” and “today” means March. Everything else should be good.

Best source for additional information: Gov’t Treasury sites here and here. I’ll try to answer comments too of course.


  1. I’ve always been skeptical about government savings bonds. I guess I’m worried that 30 years from now the government might be in a bad state of financial affairs. Or our currency will. Not sure what specifically it is that makes me a little nervous about them. Well, what’s your professional opinion about that subject?
