Where we are unable to resolve your complaint by the end of the third working day after receipt, you can expect the following from us:
This letter should clarify the final position in relation to your complaint and any actions agreed going forward.
You may go directly to The Financial Ombudsman Service with your complaint but the Ombudsman will only review your complaint at this stage with your insurer's consent. However, we are still required to follow the procedure and time frames stated above in the Response Time section.
If more than 8 weeks from the date of your complaint has passed and you have not received a final response, you may refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
If you have received a final response but are dissatisfied, you have the right of referral to the Financial Ombudsman Service within 6 months of the date of the final response letter. You may refer to the Financial Ombudsman Service beyond this time limit if your insurer has provided consent.
The Financial Ombudsman Service will let you know that they have received your complaint and what the next steps will be.
Telephone: 0300 123 9 123
The Financial Ombudsman Service will consider your complaint totally impartially and we are bound by their decision.
If you are dissatisfied with the way your complaint has been handled, you can use the Online Dispute Resolution Platform (ODR) to submit your complaint for an independent assessment - click here.
