There are several ways that Premium Bonds customers can provide NS&I with their bank account details:
- Customers already registered for NS&I’s online and phone services can input their bank account details quickly, easily and securely by logging into their account on NS&I’s website. They should visit nsandi.com and use the secure login. They should go to ’Your profile’ and select ‘Your prize options’ and choose to have prizes paid directly to their bank account or to have prizes automatically reinvested into more Premium Bonds.
- Customers who are not registered can use NS&I’s new prize options service. The new service consists of a secure three-stage process. Customers can input their bank account details and should have their Premium Bonds holder’s number to hand, which they can find on their Bond record. Customers should enter their UK bank account details and can choose to have prizes paid directly into their bank account or reinvested into more Premium Bonds (up to the maximum £50,000). Customers who opt to use this service will need either an email address or a UK mobile phone number so that NS&I can notify them of any prize win by either email or text message. Customers can also call 08085 007 007.
- Customers who are unable to provide their bank details online can phone our customer service team on 08085 007 007 to select their prize options.
