What happens next?

Sometimes we may ask you to outline your complaint in writing, this helps us fully understand your concerns. If we cannot resolve your complaint straight away, we will look into it in more detail. After your complaint has been received, we will take the following steps:

Within a week

We will try to give you a full reply. If this is not possible, we will promptly send you an acknowledgement, which will let you know we have received your complaint and provide you with details of who is dealing with it.

Within four weeks

We hope to have completed our investigations and written to you with our final response. Hopefully, this will resolve the situation but, if you are still unhappy, please contact us at Customer Services. In some cases, we may need more time to respond and if so we will write to you with an update of the situation.

Within eight weeks

In the majority of cases, we will have written to you with our final response. It is highly unlikely that your complaint will not have been resolved by this time but if it has not we will write to you with a further update.

If you are dissatisfied with our final response or the update provided at eight weeks, for insurance and consumer credit complaints you can contact the Financial Ombudsman Service. The Financial Ombudsman Service is free, independent and impartial.

The Financial Ombudsman Service consumer helpline is available on 0800 023 4 567 or 0300 123 9 123 or you can visit their website at www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk, email them at complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk or write to the Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London E14 9SR.
