4. What if I am not satisfied with the final response?
If you are not happy with the response you receive from the firm, or you do not hear from them within the relevant time period, the Financial Ombudsman Service may be able to help you. The Financial Ombudsman Service is a free, independent service for settling disputes between financial services firms and their customers. It can deal with complaints about a wide range of financial matters – from pet insurance to stocks and shares. It will ask the financial firm to explain what it thinks happened and then decide whether to uphold your complaint. It is important you contact the Financial Ombudsman Service within 6 months of receiving a final response from the firm, or it may not be able to deal with your complaint. If the firm agrees, the Financial Ombudsman Service may be able to consider your complaint before the relevant time period has passed.
