Compatible Browsers

Our secure website is currently supported by Internet Explorer. Using other browsers will restrict your access to our tools and calculators. This includes the ability to switch funds and run projections using our “What If?” calculator. It may also affect the size of the text and some hyperlinks.

Policies you cannot view online

If your policy number contains more than 8 digits or letters it will not currently be available to view online as it was not originally taken out via Scottish Widows. If your policy was taken out before 1999 it will not be available or if the policy has been assigned this will also prevent online access.

Please note, if your policy number has any subsequent digits, e.g. 8300000/1-20, please ignore anything after the slash.
