I called my bank today and asked about fees
they charge for cashing EE bond, it was
$25 fee per issue.

Is this a reasonable fee? I was under the
impression that it would be almost free for
cashing treasury bonds at most places. Is
there something that I am missing?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't cashed in any EE bonds recently but when I did, it was free!
Try a different bank?
Good luck, Chris

You could open an account at treasurydirect send them your bonds and they should be able to cash it free of charge for you. You can access it from:
http://www.publicdebt.treas.gov/sec/sectrdir.htm
and find all forms required to open an account online.

I just cashed in a bunch of EE/E bonds at my local bank, and there was no charge. To boot, they aren't a neighborhood bank, but rather a large bank and I don't keep significant balances there. They may have been under the impression you weren't a customer at all, or I'd go to another bank.

This thread raised questions in my mind so I checked with my credit union--no fees for redeeming I-Bonds. (I don't have any EE-Series so I didn't ask about them.)

Uh, it seems like part of a banks federal charter that Series EE bonds are supposed to be cashed for free. I'd say that what they're doing is either illegal or someone at the bank got confused and was thinking "T Bills" but I'd call another bank. Keep on Foolin
