    This has always confused me. Is this in addition or instead of the 3 yearly payments that were to be paid on your balance at Jan 2008, 2009 and 2010?

    If you are eligible, you should have already received massive amounts of paper over the last couple of years regarding this from both Aviva/Norwich Union/Commercial Union and the Policyholder Advocate, if not the latest offer documents.

    bagby-There was/is a checker on the NU site to see whether you were eligible for a payout - think you had to input policy no.
    Unfortunately I wasn't !

    I haven't received my pack yet, but i await it eagerly. I'm not expecting any more than the minimum, but anything helps. I just want to know when I can cash it in, because I think it'd be better off in an ISA!
