Series HH Savings Bonds

We no longer offer Series HH savings bonds, but some we issued in the past haven't matured and are still paying interest.

HH Bonds Were issued from 1980 through August 2004.
HH bonds earn interest for up to 20 years, so you may still have HH bonds that are earning interest.
What is the interest rate for unmatured HH Bonds? 1.50%
Is interest added to my bond's value? No. With HH bonds, interest is paid every six months directly to your bank account. The value of the bond never changes. Direct Deposit for HH Bond Interest
Is interest taxable? Federal income tax: Yes

State and local income tax: No

You must report HH bond interest on your federal income tax return for the year in which we paid the interest.

Also, if your HH bonds were purchased in exchange for other securities, you may owe tax on deferred interest.  See Tax Considerations for HH bonds.
Paper or electronic? HH bonds were issued only on paper.
What bonds might I have? HH bonds came in these denominations: $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000. HH bonds were sold at face value. That is, a $500 bond cost $500.
