  • explain the process for how your complaint will be resolved;

  • keep you informed about the progress (including if there is a delay); and
  • provide a final response to your complaint, in writing, within a maximum of 30 calendar days (for standard non-superannuation related complaints) or 45 calendar days (for superannuation related complaints).

The final response will include the outcome of your complaint, reasons for our decision, how you can access any relevant information and how to escalate to Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) if you are not satisfied with the outcome.
