Resolving complaints

Resolving complaints

As part of our commitment to providing quality service to our clients, we endeavour to resolve all complaints quickly and fairly.

Our policy is to acknowledge any complaint within five business days of receiving it and investigate, properly consider and decide what action (if any) to take and to communicate our decision to you within 45 days (90 days if you invested with superannuation monies). 

If you have a particular complaint regarding your Annuity, Managed Investment Scheme or Superannuation Plan, please do not hesitate to contact us by:

  • Our online complaints form
  • Phone: 13 35 66 (in Australia) or +61 2 9994 7000 (overseas)
