“Windsor Life”

trouble free investments

not managed by company

Introduction: I have been a customer of Windsor Life for about 15 years so I thought it might be useful for me to share my experiences with you. I took out a private pension and a long term Additional Wealth Plan with them shortly after buying my home. A little background on Windsor Life: Windsor...

Windsor Life has just been voted the worst for not paying out annuities in new research published by 'Which' (June 2009). They were also slammed as 'duplicitous' by David Blunkett for not paying out money due to a penniless widow (May 2009). It is clear why they are slow in paying out. They hold...

None. A worthless product from a worthless company

Everything about Windsor Life is negative.

I was forced into having an income protection plan with Windsor Life when the company I was claiming from sold my policy to them. I have been ill for a number of years but in 2008 my diagnosis changed and I began to make a slow recovery. Being an honest person I informed Windsor Life of my new...

I have been trying to surrender / cash in my endowment policy since last September (2007). The only wayto discribe the situation is..Me and my solicitor have been given the run around since that time.The comment by another unfortunate "JUST A BUNCH OF COWBOYS" FLATTERS THEM. Two months ago I phoned and asked to speek to theindividual who was handling my account, HE refused to speak to me!!! One of two thingshere,either they are as thick as two short planks or it is company policy,take your pick. At this point in time it would appear it is a definite maybe on the payout.The surrender value of the policy has dropped £1552.07 since last December. Am I going to take this to the ombudsman ? You bet! Susan McPherson.

con merchants . Leave alone. All your interest is taken in fees. Pension paid in £5500 over a 3 year period, after 15 years worth £6000 transfer value £4900. When asked why so little return on my pension they said there was a set up fee of 1350 when originally taken out and then they charge an high management fee each year. Similar pension with legal & general put in £7000 now worth over £24000 in 15 years.

Paid out quickly with no fuss.

None.

I took out a critical illness policy with a predecessor company of Windsor Life (GAN) in 1992. The policy was £39 a month and set up to pay out a lump sum of £60,000 on the diagnosis of a critical illness. In October I was diagnosed with prostate cancer - early stage and the cancer had not spread...

as so many reviews have pointed out this company is a company to steer well clear of. Not only do they ingnore compliants and try to shift blame to their agents, the return for your investment is terrible. I have been with them for years and it has now come to the point i have had to get the FSA involved. If you want to invest give me your money and i will do a better job at the car boot on sundays.
