HOW TO MAKE A COMPLAINT
The PPI complaint deadline has now passed
The Financial Conduct Authority set a deadline of 29 August 2019 for making a complaint in relation to PPI mis-selling or the non-disclosure of commission for PPI policies. If you didn’t make a complaint to us on or before the 29 August 2019, you can no longer claim money back for PPI by complaining to us or the Financial Ombudsman Service.
We may consider PPI complaints brought to us after the deadline if you couldn’t complain within the time limit because of exceptional circumstances. You would need to provide evidence to confirm that you were affected by circumstances that were exceptional and that those circumstances caused the delay.
Complaints about rejected claims or administrative matters not connected to the PPI sale will still generally be in time.
You can make a complaint by writing to us at the address below or by calling our Freephone number 0800 815 9189 (lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm).

If you raised a PPI complaint prior to 29 August 2019 and are yet to receive your final response letter, please be assured that we are in the process of dealing with your complaint and will be in touch with you shortly. If you have any queries regarding the status of your PPI complaint, please contact us on Freephone 0800 015 8512 (lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm).
