Review by our Customer Relations Team
If we are not able to resolve your complaint or you would prefer not to contact the people who provided your initial service, our Customer Relations team can assist. Here’s how to contact our Customer Relations Team:
Customer Relations will contact you if they require additional information or if they have reached a decision. When responding to your complaint, you will be informed of the progress and the timeframe for responding to your complaint.
We will provide you with an outcome from when we first received your complaint within the following timeframes:
* Timeframe starts after the expiry of the 28-calendar day period for objecting to a proposed death benefit distribution referred to in the Corporations Act.
** Exceptions apply if we do not have sufficient information to make a decision or if they reach an agreement with you.
