Series HH Savings Bonds

We no longer offer Series HH savings bonds, but some we issued in the past havenít matured and are still paying interest.

HH Bonds Were issued from 1980 through August 2004.
HH bonds earn interest for up to 20 years, so you may still have HH bonds that are earning interest.
What is the interest rate for unmatured HH Bonds? 1.50%
Is the interest added to my bond's value? No. With HH bonds, the interest earned is paid every six months directly to your bank account.Direct Deposit for HH Bond Interest
Is it taxable? Federal income tax: Yes

State and local income tax: No

You must report HH bond interest on your federal income tax return for the year in which we paid the interest.

HH bonds were offered in exchange for Series EE, Series E bonds, and some other older savings bond series. Interest on the EE/E and other bonds exchanged may have been deferred through the life of the HH bond. For that situation, see Tax Considerations for HH bonds
Paper or electronic? HH bonds were issued only on paper.
What bonds might I have? HH bonds came in these denominations: $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000. HH bonds were sold at face value. That is, a $500 bond cost $500.
Is there a minimum time to keep HH bonds? Six months - so all HH bonds have passed their minimum time. You may cash in (redeem) any HH bond you own through the Treasury Retail Securities Services. Redeeming Series HH Bonds
