Thanks for the reply, Ben. Well, I explored I Bonds a bit and read the discussion thread upon iBonds, but still I'm clueless about some stuff. I will continue to read/study more.What I'm most confused about is that people say, that there can be times when I Bonds can pay 0% interest depending on the economy. I'm still in explorations to understand since I have 3 iBonds at $1,000 each. I bought them spontaneously last year. I will not suffer if I get 0% interest, but now I wish to understand everything concerning I Bonds (or even EE bonds) because I don't want to buy more and get nothing. E.g. If let's say tomorrow I buy an I Bond for $1,000 that pays 4.66% annually(with a base fixed rate), what will I get if I cash it out in 20 years? Will the interest accumulate at 4.66% per annum, or with the interest rate fluctuate due to the unstable economy? What would cause the interest rate to pay nothing (0%)? Even I enjoyed reading the discussion, but I didn't manage to figure out answers to my own questions :((.Aida
