New PPI complaints
The deadline to submit a PPI complaint was 29 August 2019.
Making a complaint after 29 August 2019
If you didn’t make a complaint about the sale of your PPI policy (or non-disclosure of commission) on or before 29 August 2019, you can only ask us to review your policy for either of the reasons below:
If there were exceptional circumstances that stopped you from complaining on or before 29 August 2019, you may be able to complain to us, or to the Financial Ombudsman Service, even though the deadline has now passed.
For more information about exceptional circumstances, see the Financial Ombudsman Service website (opens in new window).
We’ll only investigate the complaint if we agree that the reason you didn’t complain before the deadline was due to exceptional circumstances. Please complete the complaint form (opens in new window).
You can also complain after the 29 August 2019 deadline if your PPI policy was still active on 29 August 2017 and you have had a claim on the policy rejected because of eligibility issues, exclusions or limitations in the policy. To be considered the complaint must relate specifically to the rejection of the claim. Please complete the complaint form (opens in new window).
If you need additional help and support
We want to make sure you can make a payment protection insurance (PPI) complaint easily, and that we give you a fair outcome, whatever your needs or circumstances. Please let us know if there’s something you need us to do or know about to make the process easier for you, and/or to help us to fully investigate your complaint. Examples of the types of things you might want to tell us about include:
- Needing us to write to you in a different format (such as large print, Braille, audio or email) or get in touch with you through a specific channel (e.g. in writing only).
- If you were experiencing a physical or mental health problem at the time your PPI policy was sold, which may have affected your ability to make an informed decision to purchase the policy, or if you're experiencing one currently that we should consider when responding to your complaint.
- If you have experienced a major life event (e.g bereavement, redundancy) at the time the PPI policy was sold or more recently, which we should consider when responding to your complaint.
- Any other support that you might need to help with your enquiry or complaint (e.g. only contacting you at specific times or through a third party).
