Unclaimed Premium Bonds prizes
Across the UK there are over 822,000 unclaimed Premium Bonds prizes worth more than £42 million. In Kent in particular over 19,000 prizes worth more than £1 million still remain unclaimed. There is a woman from the region who is still due to receive £50,000 after failing to claim her prize in a previous draw. She has only £128 invested in Premium Bonds and the prize was won in November 2007.
There are a number of other unclaimed prizes due to the residents of Kent, the oldest of these outstanding prizes having been drawn in April 1959. Premium Bonds holders can reduce the chances of their prizes becoming unclaimed by opting to have any prizes paid directly into their bank accounts by BACS, with notification by email.
