PensionBee Complaints Policy
At PensionBee we place the Financial Conduct Authority principles of Consumer Duty regulatons at the centre of what we do, and strive to ensure that we provide a service level that meets, if not surpasses, the expectations of our customers. On occasions when we do not meet the expectations of our customers, this page summarises how we will treat a complaint or expression of dissatisfaction.
Contact details for complaints
You should contact us promptly if you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the PensionBee Services:
Phone: 020 3457 8444 (Monday-Friday, 9:30am – 5:00pm)
Email: [email protected]
Write: PensionBee Limited, 209 Blackfriars Road, London, SE1 8NL
Please see the following set of timescales we endeavour to adhere to upon receipt of any customer complaint:
We’ll do our best to send an initial response within 24 hours, acknowledging receipt of your complaint. If your complaint is received after working hours or on a non-working day, it will be deemed received on the next following working day.
We aim to deal with all complaints (either verbally or in writing) within the close of three working days after receiving your complaint, and we’ll send you a written communication which refers to the fact that you made a complaint, the results of our investigation and that we now consider the complaint to have been resolved. If you are still not satisfied and we are unable to assist you further, you have the right to refer your case to the Financial Ombudsman Service at any time within 6 months from the date on our final response, or lapse of 8 weeks from the date of your initial complaint in case no response has been given.
If your complaint proves to be particularly complex and we have been unable to reach a conclusion, we will issue you with a final response in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority’s complaints handling procedures, within 8 weeks of receipt of your complaint.
Summary Resolution Communication
When a complaint is resolved, we will send you a summary resolution communication: a written communication which refers to the fact that you made a complaint and informs you that we now consider the complaint to have been resolved. The communication also informs you that, if you are still not satisfied, you may refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. You can refer your complaint within 6 months of receiving the final response or lapse of 8 weeks from the date of your initial complaint in case no response has been given. Contact details are:
