To check on their holdings, savers will need to use their holder’s number.

These can be found on a person’s Bond record or by logging into their NS&I account.

A holder’s number has either eight, nine or 10 digits followed by a letter.

A separate NS&I number can be used but only through the Premium Bonds prize checker app.

Should a person have an NS&I number, they’ll find it on most communications they’ve had from the company.

An NS&I number will have 11 digits, which will either start with an 11, 21, 31 or 41.

Should a Bond holder have winnings, they can choose to have the money paid directly to them into a bank account or NS&I Direct Saver account.

On top of this, they’ll also be able to have their winnings reinvested into more Premium Bonds.

NS&I will usually let Bond holders know if they’ve won by text or email.

NS&I can also send prizes through a cheque but this will take longer.

To change how prizes are received, holders can call NS&I on 08085 007 007.

Additionally, NS&I’s website can be checked on for full details and guidance on all Premium Bonds concerns.
