Will I still get a regular financial review of my DMP?

Absolutely, yes. It is vital that we complete a review with you at least once a year, to ensure that your DMP remains suitable and affordable for you. A month before your review falls due we will start to contact you by email and post to ask you to book a time for your review that suits you.

If your circumstances change, we will do a review with you at any time – just give us a call 0330 102 0004.
