Perfect service, perfect product

Friends Life have got to be one of the easiest companies to deal with. Applying on line takes only a short time, and everything you need is clearly labelled, not in industry language, which you cannot understand. The product is good and looks to be high on the market leaders' table. Customer service is excellent, but the problem I find is that every transaction seems to lead to several letters. One single payment resulted in six letters!

Customer service, ease of dealing

Too many letters

Friends life pension with my work

I would not recommend. Although this may be because of the company I work for, the pension I have has moved to 3 different companies in around 5-6 years. This leaves me wondering why and if there is a problem with them. I feel that the pension plan would have been left with them if it was good, but with it moving makes me wary of them...

Friends Life Pensions

Friends Life keep you updated regularly in writing about your pension. This is useful information so that you always know what is going on. They sponsor the tour of Britain cycle race which went through my home City of Bristol this year. It even went down my road which was great to see for real. They are well established so that I feel secure for the future.

Pension? It's a Government backed money box

I have a pension with this company via my previous employer and paid into it for about 6 years but since my redundancy, it has been in abeyance. It is difficult to be positive because until the pension matures I may be mistaken in my opinions of it's worth. Basically you pay money in, you get a pension at the end of it and get a return which MAY equate to the forecast. Until this happens it is a bit difficult to judge the company based on the deathless prose of their annual report!
