I bonds are bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury Department. They are payable only to the person to whom they are registered. I Bonds have an annual interest rate that reflects the combined effects of a fixed rate and a semiannual inflation rate. They are an accrual-type security which means interest is added to the bond monthly and is paid when you cash the bond. There are no interest payments. It is available in paper and electronic format.
