I have a lot of Series E bonds coming due. Could you please tell me if I can transfer them, as I don't want to cash them in right now. Yes, said John J. Foley, spokesman for the Bureau of the Public Debt, which runs the nation's savings bond program. You can exchange or swap your Series E and/or Series EE bonds for Series HH bonds. In effect, you can "roll over" or "convert" these bonds to Series HH bonds. As a result, you'll postpone - for up to 20 years - the federal income tax that would usually be due on the bonds you exchange, Foley said.

I'm interested in knowing when it is best to cash in savings bonds. I know if a bond is issued in January, then the best day to cash it in would be January or July. Well, is it the first day of that month, or do you need to wait for the issue date?-- P. M., Hope, R.I."The rule of thumb is, if you're going to cash in a bond, cash it in early in the month. If you're going to buy a bond, buy it later in the month," said Daniel J. Pederson, president of the Savings Bond Informer, a Detroit company that calculates bond values and sells other services to bondholders.

On Page 15C of Saturday's Business section, incorrect column headings were placed above a table of redemption values for Series E savings bonds for the years 1941-1960. The figures in the table were correct, so if you place today's headings over those published Saturday on page 15C, you can find the right information for bonds issued in the years 1941-1960.Maryland investors enticed by a 6 percent interest rate boosted sales of U.S. Savings Bonds in the state by 36.6 percent during the 12 months that ended Sept.

Every time interest rates drop on certificates of deposit, those homely old U.S. savings bonds look a little better to people who hold them -- even glamorous to investors who are rolling over CDs and don't need the interest for income.Protected by a floor of 6 percent during the 12 years it takes them mature, the Series E savings bonds are expected to be hot items again this year. People who bought savings bonds in the mid-1980s when the floor was at 7.5 percent are looking even smarter these days as interest rates withdraw from historic highs.

I'm the holder of some Series E and Series EE savings bonds, and I'd like to confirm some information with you ... concerning the interest-earning periods on E and EE bonds. I have received some conflicting information. This issue pops up all the time. And I'll bet part of the reason is that bonds can be confusing: There are different rules for different types of bonds. Fortunately, the answer to your question is fairly straightforward. Here it is, updated for the new year. And it includes some points from Daniel J. Pederson, author of "Savings Bonds: When to Hold, When to Fold, and Everything In-Between" (Sage Creek Press; 276 pages; $19.95)

I have questions on E bonds. To add the name of a co-owner, is it the same as for an EE bond? And where do you go to make this correction? And does it apply only to spouses? What about to a grandmother and granddaughter? To change the way a Series E U.S. Savings Bond is registered -- in other words, to add someone else's name as a co-owner or beneficiary -- use Form PD F 4000. You can get a copy from your local bank or by writing: Bureau of the Public Debt, Savings Bond Operations Office, Parkersburg, W.Va.

I have turned 70 as of March 15 this year. I think I have until April 1 of next year to start drawing a specified amount on my IRA. If I'm correct on this, I'd appreciate an answer. You're right, but waiting can trigger tax complications. An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) offers tax breaks to encourage you to save for retirement. In general, the only time the money in your account is taxed is when you withdraw it. With a traditional IRA, you must begin withdrawing at least a minimum amount each year, starting about the time you turn 70 1/2 . Technically, you must begin these withdrawals by April 1 of the year after the year in which you reach 70 1/2 . Some people wait until then to make their first withdrawal.
