How can we help?

We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

Can I invest by bank transfer or standing order?

Yes. You can invest by bank transfer or standing order for Premium Bonds, Direct Saver, Direct ISA, Junior ISA and Investment Account.

You must already have Premium Bonds or one of the above accounts, and you must know your holder’s number / account number.

You’ll find the details in the sections below:

  • Premium Bonds

    Each investment by bank transfer or standing order must be at least £50.

    Give the following details to your bank and tell them how much to transfer and how often. You’ll normally be able to do this online, by phone or in a branch, depending on your bank.

    Payee name: NS&I
    Account number: 11994808
    Sort code: 08 31 15
    Reference: Give your Premium Bonds holder’s number (not your NS&I number) as the reference – enter it without any hyphens, spaces or full stops. You must enter it correctly so that the payment reaches the right account.

    Or download and print a standing order form then complete it and give it to your bank.
