I have asked several times for information about pension drawdown charges and restrictions, and all I get in return is a request for my personal information. I haven't got most of the information, as I stopped contributing to this plan decades ago. Although they send my statements by post they refuse to send anything generic through the post. Pathetic. Looking to transfer to my other pension plan asap, partly because the other one has performed notably better over the last 10 years, but also because this company seems to put every obstacle in my way that they can when I try to find out general information - I dread to think what they will be like when I try to access my money.

I have been a customer of their pension scheme through work and when there is an issue to resolve (i.e. changing details, receiving statements etc), they are helpful but a bit slow and hard to contact. This review is NOT about performance of their pension scheme but rather customer service they provide.

This company MUST be avoided at all cost !!
When you are in your 90s, you will not want the hassle of trying to prove you are still alive to this obnoxious and pedantict company. All this grief for a pension that is not enough to pay for the months papers !
Run by a bunch of uncaring people who can't even get the phone number right on their own paperwork.
So please, don't make the same mistake as us.
Find a Better Company , you owe it to yourself.

Not very helpful on the phone. I just wanted to ask a general question but I got passed around, I had to answer like 20 security questions, one of them was when did my pension policy start. It was yonks ago, I can't remember. The original insurer was AXA, not Friendlife. Their questioning drove my blood pressure up. I try to avoid speaking to them by making requests online, guess what? They fail to carry out my online instruction, I had to ring them. Maybe they want to drive me to early grave before I claim my pot. Don't bother.
