When I look at my online Edward Jones account I see the current value ("Value -- The value of an asset at the close of trading on the previous business day.") of the bond. I was told by the broker that that figure is "about" what I would get for it if I sold it, he did not mention interest being in that figure or fees.

The value is now $9579.90 as I look at it this morning.

I don't know if anyone was notified that the bond was being called. If that was to be done on 5/15 then I guess notification would have been made to my Uncle, who is the trustee for my grandmother's estate. He never mentioned it and I doubt that he would have known what it meant anyway.

Perhaps I will call BoA and inquire.
