You should consider inflation indexed savings bonds. The regular inflation protected bonds or TIPS can cause tax problems. Basically you are taxed on the inflation increase in the principal even though you do not receive it. This does not occur with ISavingsBonds. You are only taxed when you cash them. More information athttp://www.publicdebt.treas.gov/bpd/bpdhome.htmThe savings bonds are currently yielding 7.49%. They will set a new rate on Nov. 1.ayduda
