If things go wrong

We are committed to giving all of our members the highest level of service, but we know that sometimes we don’t get it right. If this happens, our aim is to deal with your complaint in the fairest and most effective manner. Please tell us if you think that we can do something to improve our service by following the steps below

Step 1 – tell the Adviser dealing with your enquiry, in the first instance, that you are not happy with the service that you have received. We aim to put things right straight away.

Step 2 – if the Adviser hasn’t been able to sort out your complaint about the service we have provided, you can raise your concerns with the Team Manager. This can be done either by phone or in writing to our offices at P O Box 44, Hertford SG14 1LH

Step 3 – Alternatively, or in the unlikely event that you remain unhappy, you have the option to refer the matter to the Member  Service Manager at P O Box 44, Hertford SG14 1LH

At each step, we will advise you as soon as we receive your letter, and will provide you with a full response within ten working days.

Our written response will

  • Answer all of the points that you raise
  • Be factually correct and jargon free
  • Contain the contact details of the person responding

We take complaints about our service seriously. If we get things wrong it is important that you tell us so that we can put matters right.  This helps us to improve our service in the future for all of our members.
