UK Visas & Immigration are committed to sending out reminders to those people whose pre-settled status is due to expire and who have not yet applied for settled status. This is set out in paragraph 1.18 of the Statement of Intent published in June 2018 https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/718237/EU_Settlement_Scheme_SOI_June_2018.pdf

As pre-settled status is valid for 5 years from the date of issue, the earliest any reminders will be sent out will be 2023.
