Replacing lost iBonds FORM 1048 Options

Post by TBillT » Mon Jul 02, 2018 7:32 pm

Today I started the paperwork for replacing lost iBonds.

Question- can you get replacement for lost iBonds? or only redeem for the money?
The reason I ask is the June_2018 revision of FS FORM 1048 only seems to allow redemption of lost iBonds, which seems to contradict the TreasuryDirect.gov instructions seem to suggest electronic replacement on Treasury Direct is possible.

Good ending though, my elderly mother said she had given them to me, and there was no way she had them. But I finally asked her to please look again and thankfully...the question above is academic. But never hurts to take inventory. I am thinking of having her sell them so we do not have the problem again in the future.
