Cashing U.S. Savings Bonds in Israel
« on: September 22, 2019, 12:58:39 PM »
My SIL in Israel has some U.S. Savings Bonds he'd like to cash. The bonds are in the U.S. but can be taken to Israel. Getting him to the U.S. is more problematic since he can't take the time off from work. He went to the U.S. consulate and got them to stamp some form regarding the bonds, but they said if he wants them to verify his signature on the bonds, it will cost $50 per bond, after which he can take them to a bank or something and eventually get the cash. Any suggestions on a better way to do this?

Be careful taking them to Israel if they are above 10k. Probably considered as cash
