I remember seeing my Savings bonds E/EE series in my dad's mailbox in 2004 and in his house (throughout the house) during 1983-2004 and my name was on it, as well as his. My name was solo, while his was as beneficiary. What does this mean? Can he legally keep them from me? Am I entitled to them? I don't want to seem rude or ungrateful, but I just want to know the truth. I thought a beneficiary can only claim something if someone dies or become incompetent?
