Steer clear of Windsor Life - voted the worst in paying out

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesToo many to list. They steal your money. Non-existent complaints procedure.

"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 on to your money to make money for themselves. That is stealing. I personally have had very bad experiences with Windsor Life. They delayed in paying out ..." Read review

Poor servive and no transparancy with life/investment policies

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesorigionally missold by Gan and after readjusting policy messed up by W/L when in their management

"...have been a customer with Windsor Life (formerly GAN & General Portfolio) for over 20 Years. Overall I have had very bad experience with this company.

In order to sort them out I was kept hanging on the other end of expensive phone calls achieving nothing. When I wrote to W/L there was often no reply or like in many cases it took 6 weeks. Then ..."

Quick review of Windsor Life Assurance Co Ltd

"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.

Avoid These Lying Thieves at all Costs.

AdvantagesNone. A worthless product from a worthless company

DisadvantagesEverything about Windsor Life is negative.

"...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 circumstances and that there was now a good chance that, in time, I would make a full recovery. Their reaction was to stop all payments on my policy even though I was and am still not ..." Read review
