Complaints Process for Life, Income Protection and Funeral Insurance
We hope that you never have a reason to complain, but if you do, we will do our best to work with you to resolve it. To lodge a complaint or if you require assistance to lodge a complaint, please contact us using one of the following means:
Our complaint resolution process has three steps.
1 – Initial response
Usually when you have a complaint, we can resolve it immediately on the phone. If we cannot immediately resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, we will refer your complaint to our centralised complaints team who will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within 24 hours (or one business day) where reasonable. If we are still unable to resolve your complaint within five days or your complaint is in relation to hardship or the value or decline of a claim, we will escalate your complaint for review by our Internal Dispute Resolution team.
2 – Internal Dispute Resolution
All matters escalated to our Internal Dispute Resolution team will be responded to in writing. After full consideration of the matter, a written final response will be provided within 30 days that will outline the decision reached and the reasons for the decision.
3 – External Dispute Resolution
In the unlikely event that your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, or a final response has not been provided within 30 days, you may be eligible to refer your matter to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) provided your matter is within the scope of AFCA’s Complaint Resolution Scheme Rules. AFCA is a free, fair and independent dispute resolution scheme.
