How much is a ripped twenty dollar bill worth?

If you have more than 1/2 of the bill, it is redeemable at a bank for face value.

If you have less than 1/2 of the bill, it is probably worthless.

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing does provide a service for determining the value of mutilated currency, and will issue a Treasury check for the redeemable value.
