The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) is an independent organisation, which helps to resolve complaints that customers and financial organisations haven’t been able to resolve themselves.
If we’ve been unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks, or you are not satisfied with our response, you can refer the matter to them. We will send you full details of your referral rights in our final response and 8 week update letter. You can contact FOS by writing to:-
