Letter to Request List of US Savings Bonds

If you think you might have some US Savings Bonds, maybe as gifts from realatives over the years, but can't physically locate them, you can submit a request a list of U.S. Savings Bonds in your name. Here is a sample letter I put together to request a search be conducted:

Bureau of the Public Debt
Accrual Securities Branch
PO Box 1328
Parkersburg, WV 26106-1328

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

I would like to request a list of US Savings Bonds in my name if available. I am trying to make sure I can account for all the bonds given to me as gifts over the years. These savings bonds would have been issued to me between 1976 and 1994. I suspect these bonds are E and/or EE US Savings Bonds and both $50 and $100 denominations.

I am currently aware of the following bond serial numbers in my name:

I was looking into doing this, and came across your post. The only thing I would suggest is to double check that address, as I found an updated one listed on a few pages of the Treasury site.It was:Bureau of Public DebtPO Box 7012Parkersburg, WV 26106-7012Hope that helps!
