The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) recently launched a simple and easy-to-use Savings Bond Valuation and Verification (SBVV) tool (Off-site). This tool enables paying agent institutions to quickly calculate a savings bond’s total value and verify a savings bond’s validity.

Below are some comments on the tool from our Federal Reserve account executives:

Paying agents have been asking for a more streamlined redemption process. This SBVV tool now provides them with much more ease and efficiency.
Frank Agnew Account Executive
This new SBVV tool not only saves time and effort, it also lessens the risk of redeeming an invalid bond.
Amy Paysour Senior Account Executive
SBVV is so easy. Tellers only need to enter a bond’s serial number into one field, then the tool displays the bond’s redemption value and confirms its validity.
John Pitts Regional Account Executive

Throughout the 85-year evolution (Off-site) of the U.S. Savings Bonds Program, Fiscal Service has continually relied on feedback provided by paying agent institutions, such as yours. The easy-to-use SBVV tool now offers paying agents a great solution for cashing savings bonds.
