This chart shows monthly and six-month non-seasonally adjusted inflation numbers that the Treasury uses to set the six-month inflation-adjusted interest rate on U.S. Series I Savings Bonds.
I Bonds purchased from May through October 2022 will pay an inflation-adjusted annual rate of 9.62%, and when combined with a fixed rate of 0.0%, creates a composite rate of 9.62% for six months. Both the fixed rate and inflation rate will be reset again on November 1, 2022.
The current variable rate of 9.62% applies to all I Bonds. The effective date of the new rate — which lasts six months — will depend on the month the I Bond was initially issued.
