We are making some changes to our direct debits as we transition to LV=. But you don’t need to do anything:
- Your Direct Debit reference may change if you have a Fairmead Policy which renews after November 2022. We’re changing the collection name that appears on your bank/Building society statement to “Fairmead” rather than “Fairmead L&G” You don’t need to set up a new Direct Debit.
- When your policy renews with LV=, the only change you will notice is that LV= will collect your Direct Debits and the payment reference will appear as “LVIC” on your Bank/Building Society statement.
If you have a query on your current policy, call the number on your existing policy documents.
We have access to all details of Fairmead and LV= customer polices so will be able to help you.
If your policy has ended and your new LV= policy has started, you will speak to our friendly people at LV=. Just call us on the number on your renewal documents.
