Alpha Insurance update
The Alpha Liquidator has recently sent out letters to all UK customers of Alpha insurance who have made a premium refund claim via the Alpha online portal.
These letters acknowledge that the Alpha Liquidator has received their details and is working on verifying their premium refund claim. The letters also offer advice on whether customers might be eligible for protection from FSCS and the Danish Guarantee Fund (DGF). Please note that if customers aren’t eligible for protection from DGF, they may still be eligible for protection from us. Customers do not need to do anything further at this stage. Their details will be passed to FSCS and the DGF by the Alpha Liquidator when they have finished verifying their premium refund claim.
