if you're unhappy with the outcome you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service to carry out an independent review of your complaint. Either way, you have the right to ask them to review your complaint if we've been unable to resolve it within 8 weeks.

If you are unsure whether the Financial Ombudsman Service will consider your complaint, please contact them directly for advice. The service they provide is free and impartial and contacting them at any stage of your complaint will not affect your legal rights.

If you are unhappy with the product or the service you received, you can also use the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution service to make a complaint. The purpose of this platform is to identify a suitable Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) provider and we expect that this will be the Financial Ombudsman Service. Please be aware that the Financial Ombudsman Service will only be able to consider your complaint after Aviva have had the opportunity to consider and resolve this.
