Complaints & resolutions
What to do if you have a complaint
We understand that occasionally issues may arise and you may have a complaint. We take complaints seriously and have a process through which we seek to resolve them.
The complaints process and the times for each step is outlined below. We aim to work within these timeframes and keep you informed of the progress of your complaint. In the unlikely event that your complaint is not resolved within a maximum of 45 days, you may wish to access external review options such as the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) / Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) depending on the date your complaint is lodged (See the section on external review for more information).
If it's a CTP / Green Slip claims matter you're dissatisfied with, please refer to the CTP dispute resolution procedures in NSW, ACT & TAS or QLD
The first thing you should do is talk to one of our consultants or email us about your concerns. The consultant may be able to resolve the complaint for you. If not, they'll refer you to, or you may request to speak to a manager.
The consultant or manager will attempt to respond to your complaint as soon as possible. If they require more information, they'll aim to respond within 15 business days of receipt of your complaint.
If the manager cannot resolve your complaint, you may request the matter be referred to our customer relations area or you can choose to contact them via the following options:
- Email customer relations
- Free call 1800 045 517
- Free fax 1800 649 290

Customer relations will treat your complaint as a dispute and assign one of their staff members to conduct an independent review of the matter. They'll contact you with a decision usually within 15 business days of receiving your dispute
If you are unhappy with the decision, you may wish to seek an external review. Customer Relations will provide you with information on external review options. If you are not satisfied with our response, you may lodge a complaint:
