I can help here ... All of these kinds of issues are handled by the Treaury Department through their savings bond website called "Treasury Direct."
Replacing: If your paper bond is lost, stolen, destroyed, mutilated, or you never received it, you can request a substitute electronic savings bond.
Reissuing: If you want to change who is named on the bond , or if there is a major error in the names, see: Reissuing Paper EE Bonds.
Note: Bonds that we replace or reissue will no longer be issued in paper form but, instead, will be issued as electronic bonds in TreasuryDirect. Instead of replacing the bond electronically, you can ask for your bond to be cashed.
