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 www.nsandi.com and using the website’s Premium Bonds prize checker.
