Bonus Bonds have stood the test of time. For over 40 years, Bonus Bonds have paid out millions of cash prizes totalling more than
$2 BILLION. The Bonus Bonds investment portfolio is rated AAf by independent credit rating agency Standard & Poor's, which indicates that the "Trust Fund's portfolio holdings provide very strong protection against losses from credit defaults."
Fund credit quality ratings, which range from 'AAAf' (highest level of protection) to 'CCCf' (lowest level of protection), are identified by the subscript 'f' for fund, and represent Standard & Poor's assessment of the overall credit quality of a fund's portfolio holdings. Credit ratings assigned by Standard & Poor's Rating Services are statements of opinion, not statements of fact or recommendations to buy, hold or sell any securities. Credit ratings are subject to change.
