Treasury Hunt - Is there money out there with your name on it?

Remember when US Savings Bonds were given as gifts for weddings, birthdays, christenings, etc.? Did yours mature? Did you cash them in? Maybe they are still in a file somewhere? If you're not sure, check out the Treasury's new website: Treasury Hunt to find out if you or a loved one has savings bonds that have stopped earning interest. The site includes forms for lost, stolen, or destroyed bonds as well as ones to reinvest your bonds so that they are earning interest again.
