What happens with my complaint?
We’ll carefully consider your complaint and do our absolute best to resolve it within four working days of the day you tell us about it – as we do for most complaints. We’ll send you a letter or an email after we’ve resolved things.
If we can’t resolve your complaint within four days, we’ll write to you to explain what’s next. We resolve more than 90% of our UK Insurance complaints within four weeks. If for any reason we can’t make this happen for you, we’ll send you an update explaining why. In any case, we’ll send you a final written response as quickly as we can. If you’re still unhappy after that, or if it’s been more than eight weeks since you told us about your complaint, you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. You can visit their website here, or:
- Write to them at the Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London, E14 9SR
- Call them on 0800 023 4567
- Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
