Savings Bond Redemption allows bond owners in areas affected by a presidentially-declared disaster to redeem bonds prior to the expiration of the initial 12-month holding period. Approximately 40,000 financial institutions across the country redeem savings bonds. Savings Bond Replacement allows bond holders to request expedited service for the replacement of missing bonds, particularly those destroyed during a disaster.
Savings Bond Redemption and Savings Bond Replacement are not mutually exclusive activities. You may need both types of assistance. Both types of assistance can be requested for the same bond if a bond less than 12 months old was destroyed in a disaster.
General Program Requirements:
