Is this reasonable


N

Whe my husband died 2.5 years ago I was deeply distressed to find that
his pension had no death benefit and that all I was entitled to was the
return of the premiums paid.

The FA who came to see me took from me a copy of the death cert to pass
to Eagle Star, the pension provider.

Since that time I have left messages frequently with the FA requesting
information as to when I would be paid.

This week I wrote a "7 days or see you in court" letter and the reponse
was instant.

Apparently ES have not paid because they have not had sight ot the
letters of Probate - for which they never asked.

Is this fair and reasonable? My inclination is to report them to the
FSA.

Had I died in the past two years, no doubt the monies would have
"disappeared.

This kind of behaviour by insurance companies is all too common. It is a sad
reflection of our social and cultural decline over the last forty years.
Report them by all means to the FSA and should they be found to be negligent
and the FSA ask them to pay compensation don't be too ready to agree to the
suggested amount.

I should add that you should, personally check the rules of the scheme
concerning death before retirement to make sure that the insurance company
are not (unintentionally?) trying to swindle you. Most IFAs wouldn't do
this, as most people do not have a copy of the rules.

Also, make sure that interest is added of at least 1/2% per month to the
amount that was due 2.5 years ago.
