After you lodge a complaint

Once you’ve lodged a complaint, we will:

  • acknowledge your complaint and you will receive our Internal Complaints process within 2 working days.
  • contact you for more information.
  • approach all complaints with an open mind, listen, and treat each complainant as an individual and with courtesy and respect.
  • try to resolve your complaint quickly.
  • send you a written decision, remedies, and resolution as soon as practicable.

 

What should I do if I am not satisfied after making a complaint?

If you feel your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction using the Internal Complaints process, or you are unsatisfied with the response or resolution, you can contact Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman Scheme Inc (IFSO). IFSO is a dispute resolution scheme of which we are a member. This service will cost you nothing and is an independent service that will help investigate or resolve the complaint.
