The question of whether your brother can change his mind isn’t a Savings Bond question and I don’t know the answer. Show the paperwork to a lawyer and ask what it means.
If the agreement was with your mother, it may have become null and void when she died.
Also, my Brother legally renounced any interest in the bonds as well as her estate and basically signed them over to me.
If it is indeed his name on the bonds, can he change his mind (it’s been four years now since he legally renounced his interest) and have the bonds reissued under his name now?
I read were you said that bonds issued in 1983 reach maturity in 2013, so it makes since that my oldest bonds will not mature for a while.
On several bonds she purchased, her name is listed on each bond along with either my Father, who passed away many years ago or my Brother.I’m confused as to when to actually cash them in (some people have said to cash them in after 5 years, and other have said to cash them in right before the maturity date). The best time to cash them is right after they stop paying interest, not right before they stop paying interest.Tom Adams Hi, Can some one please tell me how or where I can find the social security number(s) of the individuals on series EE bonds?If you treat the name as that of your father, the bonds became sole owner bonds in your mother’s name at the time of his death.If you proceed from there, the bonds belong to your mother’s estate, not to you, and should be distributed according to her will or other court directive.Tom Adams Can EE savings bonds be rolled into another type of bond after maturity?I have been reading different statements on these bonds.Whether you should keep them or cash them is a complex question – it depends on what other assets and liabilities you have and what your investment strategy is.You might consider consulting a competent fee-based financial advisor (avoid advisors who don’t charge fees – they get paid by earning commissions on products that may not be best for you).Savings Bonds are an excellent choice for the low risk portion of an investment portfolio.Most advisors recommend socking away at least 6 months worth of income in low-risk investments.
