According to this article in the Telegraph the Post Office will consider refunding out of date POs on a case-by-case basis


https://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/jessica-investigates/wont-post-office-let-cash-postal-order/#:~:text=“Postal orders are valid for,that we take into consideration.


However, they quote the Post Office as saying 


“Postal orders are valid for six months from the original purchase date and following that they are reviewed on a case-by-case basis before they can be cashed in. The time that has passed since expiration is one factor that we take into consideration."


So I reckon a PO dating back to 2009 will be pushing your luck but you never know. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! As long as you haven't turned it into hamster bedding yet


I couldn't see a specific form that lets you request payment but there is a general Postal Orders enquiry form you could try.
