You may be aware that the Bonus Bonds scheme is being wound up and the proceeds returned to the holders of Bonus Bonds (Bondholders). If you have Bonus Bonds, here’s important information about the wind-up process and how you’ll receive your payment.
What do you need to do?
The ANZ will deposit your payment into any New Zealand bank account you choose. Simply get in touch by calling the Bonus Bonds Wind-up Contact Centre, on 0800 266 374 between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Please note, you don’t need to come into an ANZ branch – when you call they will let you know how to provide the details of your bank account. In many cases you will be able to provide your bank account details straight away over the phone.
If you have the details of your Bondholding (for example, your Bondholder number or a serial number from a Bonus Bonds certificate), it would be helpful to have these at hand when you call.
How much will you get and when will you get it?
The ANZ expect to make a payment of $1.10 for each Bonus Bond held, in December this year. If there are any remaining funds when the Bonus Bonds scheme wind-up is finalised, Bondholders may receive another small payment at a later date.
