[[My father-in-law has about $3500 in matured bonds that my husband paid back to him for a loan
that he has never cashed in. He considers it our money and offered it back to us. My husband said,
"No you just hold it if we have an emergency I'll know it's there".]]

Sorry, but I'm just not understanding this transaction at all. So there is very little that I can help you with. If you would like to explain the situation in a bit more detail, I'd be glad to take another pass at it.
