Did you know?

  • Each year, 25,000 payments are returned to the Department of the Treasury as undeliverable. Treasury Hunt can search for undeliverable Series HH/H savings bond interest and undeliverable marketable security interest.
  • Billions of dollars in savings bonds have stopped earning interest, but haven’t been cashed.
  • Treasury Hunt tells you about savings bonds no longer earning interest. If you still have these savings bonds, cash them or move them to a TreasuryDirect account through Smart Exchange where the proceeds will be deposited into your Certificate of Indebtedness (C of I). You can then use your C of I to purchase an electronic savings bond or another Treasury security such as a T-bill, so your money can start working for you again.
