Support and service

For intermediaries only

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic we’ve made a number of changes to make it easier to do business with us online. All our colleagues are now providing support from home and are carrying out requests from you and your clients. While phone lines remain open, we're operating reduced hours. We're anticipating a high call volume in light of the current situation, but we'll do all we can to answer your query as quickly and efficiently as possible.

You can find our service performance shown using a RAG status from 70% (red) through to 100% (green) for key processes. These include online performance, money in and out and emails. We've also included an update on our call performance. We'll update our performance regularly.
