CLAIMS MANAGEMENT COMPANIES
We would like to advise Forthplus customers that you should proceed with caution if you are approached by a Claims Management Company (CMC). If you believe you may have cause to make a claim to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), you can contact the FSCS directly to initiate a claim free of charge using the details set out below:
FSCS Contact Details
Telephone: 0800 678 1100
Postal Address: Financial Services Compensation Scheme, PO Box 300, Mitcheldean GL17 1DY
CMCs offer the service of submitting claims to the FSCS on behalf of clients. However, they generally operate on a “no win, no fee” basis. This can mean that if you sign a contract with a CMC to act on your behalf, they will claim a percentage of any compensation you are awarded by the FSCS as a result of your claim. Commissions charged by CMCs can vary significantly and you should therefore consider this very carefully when choosing whether or not to engage with a CMC.
