NS&I – National Savings and Investments – is one of the largest savings organisations in the UK, with over 26 million customers and more than £100 billion invested. NS&I separated from the Post Office Savings Bank in 1969. In 1996, it became an Executive Agency of the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
More than a third of the UK’s population has money in Premium Bonds. NS&I currently holds nearly 900,000 unclaimed Premium Bond prizes worth more than £44 million. The oldest unclaimed prize belongs to a man from South Yorkshire who won £25 in 1957.
After 18 months, prizes that haven’t been cashed in are classified as unclaimed. There’s no time limit for claiming prizes, however, and NS&I is backed by HM Treasury.
Many prizes are owed heirs of deceased relatives and owners who received Premium Bonds long ago as a child, and have since forgotten of their existence. If you’ve lost your Bond number and/or holder’s number, or if you have reason to believe a deceased relative may have owned Premium Bonds, use the NS& I Tracing Service.
