Legal & General U Turn
Legal & General have announced that they will tell over 600,000 endowment policyholders that they have only six more months to claim compensation, if they believe they were mis-sold the products.
Up until now, L&G now had been one of the few large endowment policy providers to rule out "time-barring" customers.
L&G has started to send out letters to their policy holders this week, covering the new time bar rule and informing the policy holders about their projected returns/shortfalls on polices.
Only Prudential and Nationwide Building Society are keeping an open commitment to consider complaints.
The clock is ticking.
