How to Change Ownership of EE Savings Bonds

How to Change Ownership of EE Savings Bonds
You can change ownership of Series EE bonds by filing forms with the U.S. Treasury.

Specific Forms

Which form you use depends on whether the original owner died, you're moving the savings bond to a personal trust or it's simply a new owner. If the old owner died, use Form PD F 4000 if the new owner is named on the bond or Form PD F 5336 if there's no new owner named. If you're moving the bonds to a personal trust, use Form PD F 1851. If you're simply changing the owner, such as if you bought the bond from another owner or received it as a gift, use Form PD F 4000.
