I use the savings bond wizard to keep track of the bonds I have and find it useful.

So do I.

I'm surprised you only think the interest rates are okay since they are 4% or better for EE/E bonds. I would think about how much to have to cash and when the interest will stop compared to what you estimate your tax liability to be in those years. This is a financial opinion, not a political one.

They were purchased in the 1980s and will stop earning interest at various dates between 2013 and 2024. As they stop earning interest I'll cash them.

I like to leave things alone whenever possible. My inclination is to ride out the current chaos in Washington but wanted to find out if that was thought to be wildly lunatic.
