On 24 October 2016 in Gazeta Wyborcza, the Circuit Court in Warsaw announced that a class action had been initiated against Skandia Życie TU S.A. (presently: Vienna Life TU na Życie S.A. Vienna Insurance Group), (hereinafter referred to as “SKANDIA”). The claim concerns persons – consumers who concluded with SKANDIA unit-linked life insurance agreements for a specified time limit from 15 to 30 years, who did not terminate such agreements and who seek:

  1. that the Court recognize that they constitute abusive contractual provisions and that the group members are not bound by the provisions on the value of the amounts to be disbursed to the group members and the amounts to be collected from the group members in the event of termination of unit-linked life insurance and
  2. that the Court determine that in the event of terminating insurance agreements SKANDIA is obliged to pay out to the group members the amounts equal to the value of their policy accounts.

It is possible to join the class proceedings against SKANDIA within a non-negotiable deadline of 2 months following the publication of the advertisement. The deadline for joining the action lapses on 24 December 2016. This means that not later than on that day the Law Office should receive from you a written representation on joining the group. Joining the group after that date is inadmissible.
