    Cashing in Premium Bonds 13th Jun 17 at 4:57 PM
    I'm cashing in some of my Premium Bonds and asked for Bank Transfer - assuming the money would be in my account yesterday [Monday]

    How long does this normally take as I did this on Sunday night and my money is still not in my bank a/c.

    I'm pretty sure NS&I use BACS DC for Premium Bond wins, I was notified of one on June 4th and it hit my account on the 8th (I'll try not to let the 25 change my life). I wouldn't be surprised if proceeds of sales use the same process, although they do offer Faster Payments from their savings acounts.

    See https://www.nsandi.com/files/published_files/asset/pdf/premium-bonds-brochure-print-friendly.pdf and in particular:
    57. For telephone or internet applications to cash in, we will normally initiate the electronic transfer within three banking days of receiving instructions.

    58. For postal applications to cash in, we will normally initiate the electronic transfer within eight banking days of!receiving instructions.

    59. Once we have initiated the electronic transfer, the date of repayment, for the purposes of these terms and conditions, will be taken to be the date on which, in the normal course, the requested amount would be credited to!the nominated bank or building society account. In the case of BACS, this is normally two banking days after we initiate the transfer.

    The instructions would I assume be treated as received on Monday (the next working day) meaning the payment should be initiated by Thursday. BACS takes 3 days to hit so if it was started on Thursday that would be the following Monday before I would be concerned.

    Fairly certain my last cash in arrived as a BACS payment.

    I'd imagine the OP has their money by now, as it's over 2 months later. Quite why you're wasting our time resurrecting an old thread I have no idea.
