I invested in Savings Bonds in 1996 and 1997. When do they reach maturity?
It depends on what you mean by maturity.
Final maturity - when they stop earning interest - is 30 years after the issue date for all Series EE and I Savings Bonds, as well as for all Series E bonds that are still earning interest. For Series HH and H Savings Bonds, final maturity comes after 20 years.
Series EE bonds also have an original maturity date - when they will be worth at least double your original investment. Series I, H, and HH bonds are all sold at face value and don't have this feature. All Series E and EE Savings Bonds have already passed their original maturity date except for those listed in the following table:
Series EE Savings Bond original maturity
|Issue Date||Original term||
|Mar 93 - Apr 95||18 years||3.89%|
|May 95 - May 03||17 years||4.12%|
|Jun 03 - present||20 years||3.50%|
