Yesterday the Treasury announced that it would open a disaster relief program for counties in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania that have recently been affected by flooding. The program is open through the end of August.

The program allows Savings Bond holders in these counties to get expedited replacement of lost bonds or to redeem bonds before they are one year old. For complete information, see Savings Bond disaster relief programs.
