Between the internet, word of mouth between friends, family and colleagues, and a growing confidence to fight for what is yours as a consumer, claiming against companies malpractices has never been easier. Simple online form fills or email exchanges enabling people to seek compensation can see people liberated from the shackles of a corporation’s dominance – which would have proven much more difficult historically. However, it is easy to get distracted by the win and forget about the purpose of the claim.
When claiming back on mis-sold pensions and investments that would have otherwise funded an entire retirement, it is wise to consider all options that could not only help you claim but maximise the amount of compensation.
What is a claims management company?
Put simply, a claims management company is a firm that offers advice or service to those seeking compensation. This can be for mis-sold investment or pension transfer claims, for example.
Here are some of the benefits of working with a claims management company:
Time and convenience
The urgency is maybe less apparent when seeking compensation with insurance firms or for petty claims, but time is of the essence when it comes to claiming back retirement funds. Forums and advice sites can provide some information when looking to claim, but it is often unclear where you should start without the support of professional experts.
Having a specialist guide you through the claims process from start to finish will demonstrate that the process will not last forever and highlight that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Leaving the stress of claiming up to a claims management company that has done it time and time again is severely convenient when you could be spending your time with your family or doing things you are passionate about. This is a heavily warranted reason for those who would rather share the responsibility when claiming.
Maximising your compensation
Receiving compensation is never guaranteed, but receiving the highest amount of compensation possible when claiming on your own isn’t guaranteed either Retirement should be a period in your life when you can sit back and relax knowing that your hard work is done – So why settle for the bare minimum?
Partnering with a claims management company instead of going directly to the FCA with a claim can protect you from losing out on compensation that would otherwise be sourced with the help of experts. Claims management firms understand where brackets start and finish in regards to reasonable compensation sums. A professional is likely to advise you when you shouldn’t settle and when you could be entitled to more.
Incomplete claims forms can significantly impact your compensation and even influence whether you will get reimbursement at all in some cases. Ensuring that the correct claims procedures are followed is essential and not something to be taken lightly.
Claiming can be overwhelming. Missing out on crucial paperwork isn’t a sign of incompetence, but it is common for individuals who are not experienced when seeking compensation. Working with claims management companies provides you with legal oversight to check that no form or document has been missed out.
