Message from the Financial Conduct Authority
Think carefully about this information before deciding whether you want to go ahead.
If you are at all unsure about which Lifetime Annuity product is right for you, you should make this service aware and seek further financial advice from a qualified financial adviser.
Terms of business
1 Just Retirement Solutions Limited (also referred to in this section as “we”, “us”, or “our”) is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”). We act in accordance with FCA rules and guidance.
2 The scope of our services is limited to the provision of information in relation to the purchase of an Lifetime Annuity (as used in section 2 above of the ‘Key facts’ document). An annuity is a contract sold by an insurance company designed to provide the holder with an income at regular intervals, usually after retirement. A Lifetime Annuity is an annuity that provides benefits during a person’s lifetime, which cease at their death. It is your responsibility to decide on the terms of the annuity for example, with regard to the rate of increase, the provision made for dependants and whether payments are guaranteed or not. We offer a range of annuities from the product providers listed in section 2 above of the ‘key facts’ document.
We facilitate the process of effecting these arrangements for you and will not provide any advice on which Lifetime Annuity is best suited to you. You are responsible for ensuring that the Lifetime Annuity chosen is best suited to your needs. We give you no warranty as to the suitability of the Lifetime Annuities quotes obtained as part of this document and assume no fiduciary duty in our relations with you.
3 These terms come into effect when you first make contact with us or are contacted by Just Retirement Solutions Limited.
4 We will accept your instruction orally or in writing. We will acknowledge, either in writing or orally, any instruction you give us. We can refuse your instructions at our discretion.
5 Please be aware that telephone calls to our office are recorded and monitored.
6 We will forward to you all documentation that we receive about Lifetime Annuity products.
7 We classify all customers as ‘retail’ customers. This means that you have rights with the Financial Ombudsman Service and Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Further details are shown in Sections 6 and 7 above of the ‘Key facts’ document.
8 The products in respect of which we offer an non-advised service are covered (via the relevant product provider firms) with the FSCS (as detailed above in section 7 above of the ‘Key facts’ document).
9 Our fees and charges are detailed above in section 3 above of the ‘Key facts’ document.
Conflicts of interest
We offer advice to you in accordance with the information set out in the ‘Key facts’ document. There may be occasions where a potential conflict of interest may arise in the business that we are transacting for you. If this happens, we will write to you providing full details before we carry out your instructions.
Money laundering and financial crime
11 All transactions relating to the Services provided by us are covered by Money Laundering Regulations 2007, the Proceeds of Crimes Act 2002 (as amended), the Terrorism Act 2000 and the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001. The FCA also requires that we have appropriate measures in place to prevent the furtherance of financial crime. Our responsibilities under these laws and regulations, and the rules of the FCA, include but are not limited to verifying the identity and address of our clients and of any third party making payments on their behalf. Where we require, you must supply proof of your identity in accordance with the requirements of the above regulations. Such verification may include electronic searches of the electoral roll and the use of credit reference agencies, which will result in a ‘soft foot-print’ on your credit records. The footprint is not visible to other financial service providers and does not affect your credit rating in any way.
12 We do not handle client money. Therefore, we will never accept cash and will not accept a cheque made out to us.
13 For the purposes of this clause the terms “processing”, “process”, “sensitive personal data” and “personal data” shall have the meanings given to them in the Data Protection Act (“DPA”).
14 We shall ensure that all personal data is collected and used fairly and lawfully and shall ensure that the DPA is complied with at all times.

16 Just Retirement Solutions Limited carries professional indemnity insurance.
Cancellation / termination of services
17 You or we may terminate our authority to act on your behalf at any time, without penalty. Notice of this termination can be given orally by you or by either you or us in writing and will take effect from the date of receipt. Notice to terminate in writing should be provided to the address given in section 6 of the ‘Key facts’ document. Termination is without prejudice to any services already provided / transactions already initiated, which will be completed according to this ‘Key facts’ document unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Right to withdraw
18 Where you select a Lifetime Annuity on which you have a right to cancel, we will notify you of this right in writing.
Other important information
19 Each of the clauses of these Terms of Business operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any part of any clause is (i) unlawful, the remaining parts of that clause and all other clauses will remain in full force and effect; (ii) unfair it will, as far as possible, still apply but without any part which could cause it to be held, viewed or considered unfair.
20 If we fail to insist that you perform any of the obligations under these Terms of Business, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
21 We are not liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in the performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms of Business that is caused by an event outside our control. Such failure or delay does not amount to a breach of our obligations under these Terms of Business.

In these circumstances, we must contact you as soon as reasonably possible and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended accordingly.
22 We are not liable or responsible for any mistakes in the services we provide under these Terms of Business resulting from any information we receive in connection with the service being incorrect, or relevant information not being provided.
