Easy to apply. Would be nice to have either an online login or an app to see investment grow :)
The account itself is totally fine and meets my needs, however the customer service thus far in my experience has been poor.

I have had a FFsociety from birth as my grandparents and then parents had policies for, I then in turn had endownment policies for my children who now have policies of their own.

Great communication and they sent out a bulletin to say they had so many hampers for x amount of people - first come first served. I filled in the form and was so delighted that I actually received a hamster today. Thank you FF. very much appreciated.
Excellent service once again, i have been with foresters for 60 years,and have a number of lnvestments with them and can highly recommend them.

Wanted to get a decent interest rate from my investment ,and this was a good deal in a market where rates are very poor..Bonds seem to be the sensible way to go at present and the gift of an M and S voucher was a bonus..

Very good service, easy process for me, as I knew what I wanted to do and why. I have previously had one of these plans. Its long term savings. When they mature its a nice bonus. Never used any customer service so have given 5 stars as would be unfair to give less really

Did my application on line few days got my documents, will say very efficient staff.
feel unclear online application system as we had no idea this was an investment isa rather than a cash isa that we wanted, so i have cancelled.
Hello, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you were not aware our Lifetime ISA is a stocks and shares investment one, not a cash ISA. We do explain the investment type on our website, but we will review the copy to ensure it is made clearer from the start. We are pleased you were able to easily cancel though. If you would like to find out more about any of our other savings products, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on: 0800 988 2418. Regards, Foresters
