Step 1 — Speak to us

We want to resolve any complaint or dispute for you as quickly as possible. The best place to start is to make contact with our customer service teams:

Step 2 — Our team will help you

Our team will try to resolve your complaint immediately and will provide you with a unique reference number.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, we will escalate it to our Customer Disputes Resolution Team for review.

Our Customer Disputes Resolution Team will work with you to try and resolve your complaint within 30 days.

Step 3 — If we can't agree, you can seek an independent review

Our aim is to resolve complaints within 30 days. If we are unable to finalise your complaint within this time, we will:

  • let you know the reasons for the delay
  • provide the contact details for the external dispute resolution scheme run by the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).

Additionally, if you are dissatisfied with our final decision, you can also contact AFCA directly.

AFCA independently resolves disputes between financial service providers (like insurers) and their clients. AFCA’s decisions are binding which means that even if they aren’t in our favour, we must accept them.

You have 2 years from when we make a decision on your complaint to take your complaint to AFCA.
