Our complaints procedure
Effective complaints handling is a key part of customer excellence. Every current and potential customer is valuable and we believe that you have the right to a fair, effective and courteous service at all times.
For this reason, your comments are extremely important to us. We want to know what our customers (and people interested in our products) think about our performance and the standard of services we provide. Not only does this feedback allow us to improve our individual service to you in terms of quality and efficiency, but it also helps us enhance our product.

How we will handle your complaint
Provided with detailed information about the difficulty that has arisen, our complaints team will always aim to resolve the matter to the customer's complete satisfaction, fairly, efficiently and promptly.
STAGE 1: After we receive your complaint, we will send a prompt acknowledgement, verbally or in writing, within 48 hours. If we receive enquiries via email, we will attach our answer with a unique ticket number that allows every customer to follow up on their complaint.
STAGE 2: We will then confirm details of the action we have taken. You will be kept informed of the status of the case; a final response to your complaint may take up to 15 business days.
STAGE 3: There may be occasions where customers are not satisfied with the response they have received. If this is the case, the customer's complaint may be referred to a member of staff in a higher position of authority with a view to resolving the matter.
If you are not satisfied
We are committed to resolving complaints whenever possible through our complaints procedure. If a matter cannot be resolved satisfactorily, you may be able to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. This would depend on the nature of the complaint and whether, within the rules of the service, the person making the complaint is "eligible" to refer the matter to the Ombudsman (within the eligible timeframe of six months set by them).
The Ombudsman Service exists to provide independent adjudication, and an investigation will be undertaken prior to making a decision about outstanding disputes. Yo may contact the Ombudsman at the following address:

If you are still not satisfied
We have made our complaints handling procedure open, clear and easy to follow. Although it should not be necessary for you to seek professional help, it is your right to appoint a solicitor or third party complaints-handling firm to assist you in resolving your dispute.
If you choose to employ a solicitor, complaints-handling firm, financial adviser or other third party as your representative, this does not affect the way we review your complaint. However, please be aware that:
Interpolitan Money does not charge you to investigate your complaint in accordance with the stages described in this document.
Interpolitan Money will not be liable for any costs incurred if you decide to employ a solicitor or a third party complaints handling firm or individual.
