What is a Savings Bond?

from:

Introduction

The government and authorities of the United States offers it citizens a vast number of opportunities for savings and enhancement of their income. From high-interest investments to those with a moderate-level interest but secure investments, such schemes have all sorts of saving opportunities to its citizens, a savings bond being one of the most popular of its kind.

By definition, a savings bond is basically a debt security, issued by the US Department of the Treasury in order to fund the U.S. government’s borrowing needs.

Categories of Bonds

Though the categories might undergo a change over a period of time, yet at the present there are three main categories of a savings bond in the US.

Below, we’ve included a brief description of each one of these.

a) SERIES EE BONDS – This type of a savings bond is purchased at a discount of half to its face value. The government places an upper limit of the bonds worth $5,000 (at face value) in a particular year, for this category of a savings bond.

b) SERIES OF HH BONDS – A savings bond belonging to this category can only be purchased in exchange of the Series EE or E bonds, Savings notes or with the proceeds of a matured Series HH bonds.

c) SERIES I BONDS – This type of a savings bond is sold at face value and grows with the inflation-indexed earnings for period going upto 30 years.

The Benefits

A savings bond is associated with a vast series of benefits for its customers. Here we’ve briefly listed the main benefits associated with the purchase of a savings bond:

i) Extremely safe and secure, having full government faith and support
ii) Federal taxes on the interest amount can be deferred till the time the buyer actually cashes in the bond
iii) Such a savings bond is exempt from the state and local taxes, augmenting the customers savings even further
iv) As they are registered with the U.S. Treasury’s Bureau of Public Debt, this type of a savings bond can be easily replaced in case it is lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated.
In addition, these bonds can be easily purchased from the commercial banks or through an employer by payroll deductions. These bonds can also be redeemed at many of the banks or alternatively, directly with Federal Reserve Bank. Such type of a savings bond can also be registered to a different set of people, in capacities including individual, joint and other forms of partnership.

Having a comprehensive support system form the government, a savings bond is surely one of the safest and trustworthy forms of investments in the US.
