Payment Protection Insurance
The deadline for new PPI complaints has now passed
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulates us and other financial businesses. The FCA provides guidance to make sure that all the companies they regulate treat complaints in the same way.
In 2017, the FCA set a deadline of 29 August 2019 for all PPI complaints and started a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of this. Generally, complaints received after this date are out of time, so providers and other financial businesses that the FCA regulates won’t review them.
There are certain exceptional circumstances where we will consider a PPI mis-selling complaint received after the FCA deadline. We’ll also generally consider PPI mis-selling complaints submitted following a rejected insurance claim on a policy that was live on or after 29 August 2017.
The Financial Ombudsman Services has more information about exceptional circumstances.
If you believe we should consider your complaint, please tell us why.

If you’ve already made a PPI complaint
If you submitted a complaint before 29 August 2019, we’ll acknowledge this in writing as quickly as possible. It’s currently taking us longer than usual because of unprecedented volumes prompted by the PPI complaints deadline, so it might be up to five weeks before you hear from us.
We usually aim to let you know the outcome within eight weeks of receiving your complaint, but this is also taking longer than usual. We appreciate you’ll want to know the outcome as soon as possible so we’re working hard to reduce these timescales. If we’ve already written to you asking for more information, here’s what you’ll need.
How to contact us
If you submitted your complaint on or before 29 August 2019 and want an update, please call us. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm and Saturday 8am to 1pm.
