If you own or are considering purchasing a U.S. savings bond, the U.S. Department of Treasury's Bureau of the Fiscal Service has designed a useful tool for determining the present and future value--as well as historical information, current interest rate, next accrual date, final maturity date, and year-to-date interest earned. Known as the Savings Bond Calculator, it can help you make more informed investment decisions about savings bonds.
