My I bonds are less than five years old. Does your Savings Bond Calculator take into consideration the three-month interest penalty for redemption before five years or does it give a bond’s actual value?
Our Savings Bond Calculator shows redemption values – the actual amount of money you’ll get if you redeem a bond. The three-month interest penalty has already been deducted from the bond’s actual value to come up with these redemption values.
