Any complaints regarding claims should be referred to the underwriter for that product. Details of these can be found in your policy documentation.
How we will deal with your complaint
Once we have received your complaint, we will either respond fully or, if this is not possible, we will acknowledge its receipt within five business days. We will give you details of who is handling your complaint, should you wish to contact us regarding its progress.
Some complaints can be resolved easily, within a few days, but others are more complicated and require extensive investigation to ensure that whatever we propose is fair and consistent. Your complaint will be handled by an experienced member of staff who has not been involved previously in the subject matter of your complaint, thus ensuring impartiality.
In line with the guidelines set by the FSA, we will strive to resolve your complaint at the earliest possible stage. If we have not resolved your complaint after eight weeks, we will write to you stating why we are still not in a position to make a final response and indicating to you when we expect to be able to provide you with one.
Our final response will outline the investigation that we have carried out into your complaint, and details of how we propose to address it. If, while we are dealing with your complaint, you decide you would like to discuss the matter or bring other information to our attention, please contact us. It will help us to know all the relevant facts in order to reach a fair conclusion.
When we send you our final response we will include a leaflet entitled "Your Complaint and the Ombudsman". This details the procedure you need to follow if you are either unhappy with our final proposed solution, or unhappy with waiting longer than eight weeks to receive our final response and you wish to take your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. You should always give us the opportunity to resolve any complaint you wish to make about our products and services before you approach the Ombudsman.
We would like to reiterate that Saga takes all complaints extremely seriously. We will strive to ensure that they are dealt with in a fair and equitable manner and that a satisfactory conclusion is reached.
