The NetLine is an online text ‘chat’ service, where you can talk to an Adviser by typing, and they will type back. You can access the service via a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop PC. As well as reading what the Adviser types, you the Adviser can also send you documents and links to read later.

This service is for people in the UK 

The NetLine is available from 8am and Midnight, seven days a week, to UK users. If you cannot see the link during these hours please try a different internet connection.

If you are struggling to use the NetLine service, please call the helpline on 0808 8020 133.
