How do I complain to {{ourName}}?

Complaints procedure

We hope you don't need to complain, but if you do then we will do everything we reasonably can to address your concern. Please send an email detailing your complaint to feedback@cushon.co.uk.

We will aim to acknowledge your complaint on the same day it is received. Depending on the nature of your complaint, we might be able to address it straight away or we might need a bit more time to gather all the relevant information. Please bear with us.

When we've got all the information we need we will email you a response. If you're happy then you don't need to do anything else. If we don't hear back from you within two weeks then we'll assume you're happy and send you another email confirming that we've closed your complaint.

If you're not happy with our response then tell us why and we'll look at it again. We will always provide a final response within eight weeks of receiving the original complaint.

If you're not happy with this final response then you can take your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service by either completing the form on their website, or by calling them on 0300 123 9123 or 0800 023 4567.

Complaints about the Cushon Master Trust

The complaints procedure is available to all members. You can submit your complaint yourself or appoint a representative. This process is known as the Internal Disputes Resolution Procedure. The main features are summarised below.

Send your complaint to feedback@cushon.co.uk, quoting your:
  • Name

  • Address

  • Date of Birth

  • National Insurance Number

Please state the reasons you are dissatisfied. If you are not a member, you should give the member’s details as well as your own and explain your relationship to the member. We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint.

You will normally receive a decision within 8 weeks and a copy of your complaint and this reply will be forwarded to the Trustee.
