MORE than 6,600 Premium Bond prizes worth more than £295,000 have yet to be claimed in Cambridgeshire.

A woman from the region with just £1 invested in Premium Bonds is still due to receive £1,000 after failing to claim a prize she won in May 1998.

The oldest unclaimed prize, worth £25, dates back to October 1966.

There is no time limit for claiming prizes and each unclaimed prize is held until the rightful winner can be tracked down.

Jill Waters, NS&I’s Operations Manager, said: “It is likely that the winner of the £1,000 prize is unaware or she has forgotten that she has Premium Bonds.

You may also want to watch:

“Prizes often become unclaimed as a result of people moving house, or forgetting that Bonds have been bought for them as a child, or executors are unaware the Bonds are held when someone dies”.

You can check if you have won by going to and using the website’s Premium Bonds prize checker.
