Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) queries and complaints

Important information - the Payment Protection Insurance complaint deadline has now passed


The deadline for making new PPI complaints about mis-sold policies or undisclosed commissions has now passed. Due to this deadline, our current enquiries and complaints levels are very high.
Please bear with us, we’ll contact you as soon as we can. If you haven’t heard from us 21 days after submitting your complaint, do get in touch. 
 
There may be exceptional circumstances that would cause a new PPI complaint about mis-selling or undisclosed commission to be in time.
Contact us if you think this applies to you. You can still make a complaint about other aspects of your policy, such as the administration or claims.

Existing PPI complaints - 5 frequently asked questions

I'm not happy with your decision on my complaint, can I still go to the Financial Ombudsman Service?

Yes you can. You've got six months from the date our final response was issued, to go to the Financial Ombudsman Service. In some circumstances they will look at complaints outside this timescale.

I submitted a complaint some time ago, but haven't heard anything. What should I do?

Due to the increased volumes of complaints leading up to the 29 August 2019 we may need a bit longer to look into your complaint. In the meantime you can contact us for an update on 0800 121 8899 or write to us at FREEPOST CBS CUSTOMER RELATIONS.

I've not had a response yet, what's happening?

We'll normally try to call you within the first two working days after we've received your complaint to discuss it with you...

Reaching a resolution

When we've fully investigated your complaint, we’ll send you our final response letter letting you know our decision, and tell you about any compensation if this is due.
 
If you're not happy with our decision for any reason, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service to review it for you.

What happens if we can't reach a resolution together?



We're covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service which offers a free and independent review service.

If you're not happy with our final response, you can ask them to review your complaint for you.

You have six months from the date of our final response, or summary resolution communication, to refer your complaint to the ombudsman service.
