Savings Bonds are a great way for both adults and kids to save money. Some companies even make purchasing them part of a payroll deduction. EE Bonds are reliable, low-risk government-backed savings products that you can use toward financing education, supplemental retirement income, birthday and graduation gifts, and other special events*. You can purchase them in denominations of $50, $75, $100, $200, $500, $1,000, and $5,000. They are sold to you at half their face value. For example, if you want a $1,000 bond, you pay $500 and then over the course of time, your interest accrues until it matures.
I bonds are an accrual type bond and are purchased at face value. I Bonds are a low-risk, liquid savings product. While you own them they earn interest and protect you from inflation*. The interest is added to the bond monthly and paid when you cash the bond. Denominations available: $50, $75, $100, $200, $500, $1000, and $5000.
You can redeem bonds anytime, but in the first five years, you’ll forfeit the three most-recent months’ interest. If you redeem after five years, you won’t be penalized.
