Savers can now squirrel a further £10,000 from the tax man, as National Savings & Investments ups the lifetime limit on Premium Bonds.

As of today, you can own £40,000 of the tax-efficient savings products, up from £30,000. The increase is just one of the many “support for savers” measures announced in this year’s Budget by Chancellor George Osborne.

More than 20 million people are reported to own Premium Bonds, and every bond has a 24,000-to-one chance of winning a prize. NS&I hold a prize draw monthly, with at least one £1 million pay-out, around three pay-outs of £100,000 and up to two million £25 prizes. Nationwide, there are currently nearly 900,000 unclaimed Premium Bond prizes worth more than £40 million. There is no time limit for claiming prizes.
