I know I bond's interest move in respect to inflation, but I am confused:

I bought some I bonds 7/15/01 at 5.9% and am wondering if that interest base remains the same as when I bought it, plus/minus current inflation. I hope my question makes sense. In other words is my return still 5.9%, or has it gone down because interest rates have gone done and inflation hasn't risen.

Thank you.
