I'm not sure you can count on that see https://www.nsandi.com/files/published_ ... s-form.pdf
We will let you know if we need a Grant of Representation (also known as a Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration)
once we receive your completed form. We may ask for this if the customer’s total NS&I savings are £5,000 or over. The Director of
Savings also reserves the right to request a Grant of Representation for a claim of any value.
