What would the approximate value of a $50 EE bond bought in April of 1982 be today? I have quite a few bought in the 80s and I'm wondering if it's worth keeping until the thirty years is up. Tom's response That particular bond is worth $107 this month and is currently earning 4%. There are no alternate investment opportunities at this low risk-level (bank CDs, Money Market Accounts, new Savings Bonds) available right now that pay that much. If interest rates increaae over the next few years, it might present an opportunity to switch into something else.
