I doubt the 46 year-old who still has some of the bonds given to her as a child will read this, but, if these are US savings bonds, she should cash those in. US savings bonds only earn interest for a fixed period of time, typically 20 years. After that time they mature and don't increase in value. Any bonds that have matured should be redeemed and, if desired, reinvested in new bonds.
