There are more than 30,000,000 unredeemed Savings Bonds dating back to the 1940’s that have reached final maturity, totaling approximately $13 billion in unclaimed assets. Legislation has been introduced that establishes a system for returning this property back to its rightful owners.

This initiative will require many complex steps that will include a massive review of old ownership records in order to validate addresses, deliver bond records to the correct states, and locate owners.
