Mark – as the above chart shows, H/HH bonds are no longer issued, so no, you can’t.

Do you still issue paper bonds? I can’t keep track of all the junk on computers. I don’t want to buy anymore bonds if I don’t get a certificate of ownership.

Hi Vern – I wrote a book about Savings Bonds, but I’ve never issued them. The US Treasury, however, still issues paper Savings Bonds.

I have read that my series I savings bonds, bought in 07-2000, have now started paying interest. Anywhere from 3 to over 6%. BUT, the websites I use to calculate interest still show them earning 0%. What is really going on? Thanks

Steve – The information you’re looking for is on my page about how I bond interest rates work. Take particular note of the section called Understanding rate periods.

when I bonds were 1st issued they were a good deal, but gradually the return has decreased, during the 6 months when the interest rated were zero, does that mean they earned no money?

On February 19th, 2010 Tom Adams said:

Barbara – I bonds are the same they always were. The earn a fixed rate plus inflation. When inflation is negative, the total rate can’t go below zero.

For six months all I bonds earned no money, that is correct, but compared to other available investments with similar quality they are still a very good deal.
