Some questions answered

1. HOW OFTEN ARE THE WINDFALL BOND DRAWS?

Every month, on the tenth working day of the month

2. HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR THE WINDFALL BOND DRAW?

Each bond requires a £10,000 deposit. Bonds qualify to be entered into a draw for the first time in the second calendar month after being opened (for example, a bond opened on 1 October first qualifies for a draw in early December)

3. DO I NEED TO REGISTER?

You don't need to register to enter the draw - each qualifying bond will be entered into the draw without registration.

4. WILL I GET CONFIRMATION OF MY ENTRY?

You'll receive a certificate for each bond once it's opened, but not confirmation of entry into the draw.

5. IF I HAVE SEVERAL WINDFALL BOND ACCOUNTS, AM I ELIGIBLE FOR MORE THAN ONE ENTRY TO THE DRAW?

Every bond is entered into the draw separately. For example if you had five Windfall Bonds you would be entered into the draw five times.

6. WHAT ARE MY ODDS OF WINNING?

64 to one over your first 12 monthly draws as a bond holder.

7. CAN YOU WIN MORE THAN ONCE?

Yes. The more Windfall Bonds you hold the greater your chance of winning. 13 winning tickets are chosen at random each month.

8. HOW DO I CLAIM MY PRIZE?

You don't need to claim your prize. Winners will be contacted within 20 working days of the draw by our Family Service Team and sent a Winners Certificate to complete, sign and return to us. Once this is received by us we'll need a few days to go through the claims verification process (this can take up to 10 working days) and then we can send you your winnings.

9. HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY PRIZE?

Your prize winnings will be sent to you by bank transfer. We'll send the funds to the account you nominated on the application form when you applied for your Windfall Bond.

10. CAN I SEE A LIST OF WINNERS?

View our list of winners.

11. HOW LONG WILL THE DRAW CONTINUE FOR?

Indefinitely, although we do reserve the right to change the terms of the draw, the prizes available or end the monthly free draw after giving 70 calendar days notice.

12. WHAT IF I NO LONGER WISH TO TAKE PART IN THE DRAW?

The only way to not be included in the draw is to close your Windfall Bond.
