I have savings bonds that were given to my daughters 20 years ago. When is the best time to cash them in, or have I missed that window?

Have you gone to the US Treasury's Savings Bond Calculater to get the detail on the interest rate they're earning and the maturity dates? If not, you can do that by visiting http://www.treasurydirect.gov/BC/SBCPrice.

You can cash them out at any time. Prior to their maturity date you will receive less than face value and later than maturity you may or may not receive more than face value.

You will learn everything you need to know by clicking the links on the Treasury Direct website.

I hope this helps!
