Remember how you could purchase bonds easily via MyPay? They are being held in safekeeping until you ask for them. Here is how to have those bonds mailed to you within 30 days.


INFORMATION FOR BONDS HELD IN SAFEKEEPING FOR MILITARY MEMBERS:

All bonds being held in safekeeping as of the above date for ACTIVE DUTY MEMBERS will continue to be held until they are requested.

The request must include the service memberís name, complete Social Security Number, a valid address where the member would like the bonds to be mailed, a daytime telephone number, and the memberís dated signature. The request must indicate that the member wants the bonds released from safekeeping. Thirty days must be allowed before a member can claim non-receipt of a bond.


Addresses to write to for each branch at link:

I'm sharing this because if you just ask the treasury, they will not know where your bonds are.
