terry i have 3 or 4 savings bonds that are due this month 30 year ones that are earning 5 percent how do i handle this thanks dan

Terry Says:  First, you need to make sure that those bonds are reaching their final maturity, not just the “original” maturity date.  You can do this either at the government website:  www.TreasuryDirect.gov, or at Jackie Brahney’s site www.SavingsBonds.com, where you can get specific advice about what date to cash them in after they do stop paying interest, so you don’t lose a penny of the interest you earned.
