Treasury and Veterans Affairs Remind Veterans This Memorial Day to Visit TreasuryHunt.gov to Find and Redeem Their Matured Savings Bonds
May 24, 2023
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance to honor service members who died while serving our nation. This also serves as an opportunity to continue our support of Veterans and their families.
In collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service wants to remind veterans across the nation that they may be owed money from matured savings bonds. Veterans may have purchased savings bonds through a payroll savings program while serving in the military and may have forgotten that they purchased them.
Veterans (and other citizens) hold nearly $40 billion in savings bonds that no longer earn interest and should be redeemed. Through the collaboration between Treasury and VA, more than $82 million has been redeemed by Veterans and their survivors. We are here to assist you with finding your bonds.
To see if you may have matured savings bonds, you can visit TreasuryHunt.gov and conduct a simple search. Newly matured bonds are added monthly, so be sure to check the site often.
If you have bonds at home, you can redeem them at your local bank. Alternatively, please visit TreasuryDirect.gov for additional redemption options.
We want to thank all the courageous military members who served and as always, we thank you for your service to our nation.
