Hundreds more policyholders at Scottish Widows will receive pay-outs under proposed amendments to windfall rules.
Customers with policies maturing between June 22 1999 and March 3 2000 and second-hand traded endowment policyholders who previously were going to lose out are now set to receive the windfall.
The amendments are part of the proposals package 1.5m policy-holders will vote on December 22. Three quarters of voters will need to support the changes if the excluded policy-holders are to be brought out of the cold.
Scottish Widows press officer Paula Sutherland, said: “We appreciate the definition of membership needs to change to include.”
