The effect of COVID-19 on our services

Stay up to date with the latest information about how to get in touch with us during COVID-19 disruption.

We're working hard to make sure the effects of COVID-19 cause as little disruption to our contact services as possible. But to protect our staff and our customers, we may need to reduce some of our services at times. We've included all the latest service updates for you on this page. 

What services are affected?


Managing your investments during the COVID-19 outbreak

Update on how to contact us

The health, safety and wellbeing of our customers and our employees is incredibly important to us. The spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has created a great deal of uncertainty and disruption for everyone. We’re making sure that we’re still available to help you manage your investments while also ensuring the safety of our staff during this challenging time.

With this in mind, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close our offices and ask that all our Service Centre operators work from the safety of their homes.

As such, we are unable to accept telephone calls for buying and selling instructions, and changes to your investments or your account.

You can still manage your L&G savings and your account online through My Account or by post at the following address:

Legal & General Investments
PO Box 6080

Use My Account to:

  • Add to or sell your investments
  • Change your fund choice
  • Set up regular monthly payments
  • Check your valuation
  • Manage your account

Vulnerable customers

Vulnerable customers or those with exceptionally urgent financial needs can contact the team directly by email at

Can’t find what you’re looking for?

Send us a secure message through My Account and our team will get back to you as soon as possible. Due to the disruption, response times may be longer during this period.

Please note that unfortunately we cannot accept buying, selling and other instructions about your account or your investments given to us by any other route – for instance, over email or through our social media channels (such as Twitter or our Facebook group). The security of your savings is vital and so we have to make sure that any instruction relating to your account is genuine. 


Retirement income

Our focus is on ensuring we continue to support customers. We’ve prioritised carrying out essential tasks, so we’ve made some changes and introduced ways to help you self-serve.

We’ll continue to provide you with ongoing updates on the website to keep you up-to-date.

Our response to COVID-19 /the Coronavirus

Worried about the markets?

COVID-19 has caused some big moves in markets and that can be uncomfortable for investors. However, short-term unpredictability does not necessarily mean a permanently smaller savings pot. We find at these times it’s best to keep in mind your long-term savings goals and not let short-term market fluctuations get in the way. 

Read the latest articles from our investment experts, how investors can deal with the COVID-19 market impact and why there are several reasons to stick with your ISA in jittery markets. 

We hope that the above information is useful. If you’re uncertain what’s best for you savings, investments and pensions, it might be a good idea to consult a professional financial adviser. You can find a full list of authorised financial advisers in your area here

It is important to remember that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results, and the value of an investment can go down as well as up.
